Are you sure it's a Tomcat problem and not a leap year bug in your application's code?

Dear Ben,

I am sure ,, this is not Leap year bug.

Even in log files, created by tomcat while server startup,,, its showing wrong date . But i donot know where exactly tomcat picking this date.
Even OS , applications out side of tomcat are Perfect. only Issue with applications running in this tomcat.

I vaguely recall a report of a leap year related problem in earlier versions of Java that got fixed in updates - is your Java updated to the latest version?

I agree. Here's the link:
