Hopefully you're not creating custom logging levels. Creating custom logging 
levels is the classic way to create classloader leaks. See the following as an 
example:

http://blogs.sun.com/fkieviet/entry/classloader_leaks_the_dreaded_java

You can create a logging.properties file and place it in WEB-INF/classes. You 
can then change this file, rebuild your application, and redeploy it without 
taking down Tomcat.

You could also add a WatchedResource element to your Context and point it at 
WEB-INF/classes/logging.properties. When that file is changed, Tomcat will 
reload the application.

See: http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/config/context.html

I'm not really sure you want to do the WatchedResource configuration in a 
production environment though . . .

. . . . just my two cents.

This may be slightly off-topic.

I'll start off with I know how to do this from inside the webapp's code and how
to do it by modifing properties files on the system at tomcat startup. But how
can it be done from outside the webapp with out restarting tomcat?

We are using java.util.logging on tomcat 5.5.23 using jdk 1.6.0_17.
