Subject RE: Logging makes a grown man cry

Currently we use tomcat configured as out-of-the-box for logging (no
log4j) and log4j.jar and config in the app war file.

We found issues with trying to have log4j in catalina/lib.

That said, it would be nice to use log4j for tomcat, however we found
that the two configurations collided in our slf4j setup.

So, all I want is to have:

1. one log file that rolls daily (a new file each day), with the date
appended, that catches my own logging code in the app, based on a global
logging level value that I can change (DEBUG, or INFO, or ERROR etc) as

2. Another log file that rolls daily and consolidates any other output
of the server and app (or two separate files) and also has a logging
level value that can be changed globally.

3. Get rid of the empty localhost. file.
