Hello Friends,

I have created 2 context on the tomcat 4.1.27 and used log4j in both. The log file of both the context is different. But when i run tomcat. The log of both the context are print in the one log file only..
And the log will print in different log files as n when restarting tomcat.. Means while first time i start tomcat it prints log in first context's log file, and when i m restarting it for the second time it prints it in another context's log file..

If You people have any idea about it than plz let me know..
