Hi all,

I have a question about rotating catalina.out file. Is there any way to accomplish this through Tomcat without using external tool like logrotate for example as shown in the following thread:

I understand that this might be a matter of bad coding practice but since I'm not the developer of the applications running on the server I can't do much about it. The applications are configured to use log4j but the developers say they can't do much to redirect the applications console output to the log files.

Thanks in advance for any help.
