Subject Default Initialization under Tomcat (5, 6)
Date Thu, 15 Jul 2010 17:20:59 GMT

I was able to get log4j working with syslog without too much trouble
using tomcat5. Yet with tomcat6 I'm having a heck of a time trying to
figure out where log4j.properties should go.

tomcat5:

JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS
-Dcatalina.ext.dirs=$CATALINA_HOME/shared/lib:$CATALINA_HOME/common/lib"

/var/lib/tomcat5/common/lib/log4j.jar
/var/lib/tomcat5/common/classes/log4j.properties

works great!

tomcat6:

tomcat    9995  0.5  1.2 649772 24900 ?        Sl   21:01   0:03
/usr/bin/java -classpath
:/usr/share/tomcat6/bin/bootstrap.jar:/usr/share/tomcat6/bin/tomcat-juli.jar:/usr/bin/build-classpath:


error: JVM_LIBDIR /usr/lib/jvm-exports/java-1.6.0 does not exist or is
not a directory -Dcatalina.base=/usr/share/tomcat6

/usr/share/tomcat6/lib/log4j.jar
/usr/share/tomcat6/lib/log4j.properties

(and many other locations)

fails, fails...

*?* Do I need a dir like /usr/share/tomcat6/common

These instructions are over 8 years old so I imagine this section, in
particular has changed quite a bit "Default Initialization under Tomcat"

And lastly, there's this snippet on the Apache website -- is all this
necessary?

http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/logging.html#log4j

# Download Log4J (v1.2 or later) and place the log4j jar in
$CATALINA_HOME/lib.
# Build or download the additional logging components. See the extras
components documentation for details.
# Replace $CATALINA_HOME/bin/tomcat-juli.jar with
output/extras/tomcat-juli.jar.
# Place output/extras/tomcat-juli-adapters.jar in $CATALINA_HOME/lib.
# Delete $CATALINA_BASE/conf/logging.properties to prevent
java.util.logging generating zero length log files.
# Start Tomcat
