Tomcat 3 Logging

We have not been able to configure a Tomcat 3 instance to log each access, similar to the Tomcat 4 "localhost_access" logs. Is there a way to do this without significant coding? Any help appreciated, this instance needs to go away, but we would like to know that it is no longer server users before retiring it.

Do you have an index.jsp file that you could alter to include something like: System.out.println("ping");

Can you throw Apache in front of it, and use apache's access logs ?

Or... hopefully someone that actually uses Tomcat 3.x will come on and tell you how to really do it.
I agree. Here's the link:
