Sorry. I should have expanded on that.

There used to be two options, juli and log4j. Essentially these were two
concrete implementations of a Tomcat defined logging API based very
heavily on commons logging. The default implementation used

log4j is no longer supported. Its replacement, log4j2, can hook directly
into the java.util.logging framework. Therefore, there is no need for
the separate modules. The classes from the tomcat-embed-logging-juli JAR
were merged into the core JAR.
