Any idea why this jar is put under bin directory while all other jar files are under lib directory? Also this is the only jar file in bin directory.

Any significance in tomcat for putting jar files in bin directory?

Tomcat normally logs using juli (java.util.logging). However it is possible to create a Tomcat that uses some other logging facility, such as log4j.

Logging at the server level (webapps do not log through this system) is not a reconfigurable option. It can only be changed by doing a custom Tomcat build, and Tomcat's logging is something that has to come up very early in the startup sequence if it is to be effective. Probably before Tomcat scans the TOMCAT_HOME/lib directory.


An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
