logs with Tomcat 5.5.9

By default:

1- all logs in Tomcat 5.5.9 are written in CATALINA_HOME/logs directory.

2- at least we have 2 log's files:

catalina.YYYY-MM-DD.log and localhost.YYYY-MM-DD.log

I am trying to move elsewere the logs, by changing the default path.

For localhost's log file, it is an easy thing to set up. We have to write it down in server.xml by using AccessLogValve etc.

My question:

what about catalina.YYYY-MM.DD.log? How can I change the default path for this file to point elsewhere.

Consider Paul's rocket mass heater.
