Subject Re: Logging Requirement in Tomcat 5.5.16
Date Wed, 21 Apr 2010 09:16:45 GMT
Hi Pid,

My answer below.

I saw the same file names in another server (not implement log4j yet), that
server is running on default logging (Tomcat Juli).

I think Tomcat by default created those extra zip files, I would like to
know how to disable that.
