Mohit,

>From the Tomcat documentation (
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/logging.html):-

The logging.properties shipped with JDK is set to INFO. This file can be
located at $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib
Thus your default logging level in catalina.out is set to INFO.

In order to override this, either configure Log4j or java.util.logging in
your Tomcat container.
Example, if you choose to configure Log4j, you have to:-

1. Create a file called log4j.properties as per your needs and save it into
common/classes. Obviously in your case you would set the Root Logger to
ERROR and specific packages as per your needs to lower logging levels.

The example mentioned in the documentation refers to a file named
tomcat.log. If you use the example as is, you would stop getting any logging
messages in catalina.out, and start getting the same messages if tomcat.log
instead. If you are keen to use catalina.out use the following line:

log4j.appender.R.File=${catalina.home}/logs/catalina.out

instead of

log4j.appender.R.File=${catalina.home}/logs/tomcat.log


2. Download Log4J <http://logging.apache.org/log4j> (v1.2 or later) and
place the log4j jar in $CATALINA_HOME/common/lib.
3. Download Commons
Logging<http://commons.apache.org/downloads/download_logging.cgi> and
place the commons-logging-x.y.z.jar (not commons-logging-api-x.y.z.jar) in
$CATALINA_HOME/common/lib with the log4j jar.
4. Start Tomcat

Corresponding steps are available if you want to use java.util.logging
instead of Log4j.

I have used the above configurations and they do work as expected!

All the best!

Cheers
Anurag
