Web Application And Logging

Hello All;

I have a web application that follows a MVC design pattern. JSP creates the view, servlets pass paramters back and forth between java classes that do all the business logic and database transactions.

Now I would like to get all the components writing to the same log file on the server. Not totally sure how I can do this.

My web server is Apache, Servlet Container is Tomcat, DB is mySQL.

Anyone out there done something like this? Any tips?

You can get all the components from Tomcat to log to the same log file by using Log4j. You can download it from here.
