Subject Re: Can we use output/extras/tomcat-juli.jar by default?
Date Mon, 20 Aug 2007 22:46:50 GMT

Hi,

If I understand Filip's answer correctly... the difference between the
default tomcat-juli.jar and the output/extras/tomcat-juli.jar is that the
first one is some glue code that hardcodes commons-logging to  work only
with java.util.logging and the second supports the "complete"
commons-logging - therefore also log4j.

So am I correct to think that it does not hurt to have the "extras"
tomcat-juli.jar and tomcat-juli-adapters.jar in the ${catalina.home}/lib,
without log4j.jar, and still successfully log by configuring a j.u.l 
${catalina.base}/conf/logging.properties ?

Bill's comment is an interesting one. I remember seeing somewhere (tomcat
docs?) a warning against app reloading; that doing so was a memory leak soon
or later.

Many Thanks - Fred

they enable you to plug in commons-logging if you want to use that 
instead of java.util.logging
