When using Tomcat - 8280 keeps it's logs in ".IntelliJIdea80\system\tomcat_Unnamed_DBClassifyed9f2a8\logs".
Why not creating them in the "logs" folder of the Tomcat itself ?

Thank you !

cmd /c D:\Winny\java\apache-tomcat-6.0.16\bin\catalina.bat run
Using CATALINA_BASE: C:\Documents and Settings\evgeny.g\.IntelliJIdea80\system\tomcat_Unnamed_DBClassifyed9f2a8
Using CATALINA_HOME: D:\Winny\java\apache-tomcat-6.0.16
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: D:\Winny\java\apache-tomcat-6.0.16\temp

Isn't it weird or it's the way it should be ?
I would like Tomcat logs go to "D:\Winny\java\apache-tomcat-6.0.16\logs" instead of ".IntelliJIdea80\..."

Tomcat put logs in \$CATALINA_BASE\$ directory by default. You can change
directory for logs in TOMCAT_HOME/conf/logging.properties file.

cmd /c D:\Winny\java\apache-tomcat-6.0.16\bin\catalina.bat run
Using CATALINA_BASE: C:\Documents and Settings\evgeny.g\.IntelliJIdea80\system\tomcat_Unnamed_DBClassifyed9f2a8
Using CATALINA_HOME: D:\Winny\java\apache-tomcat-6.0.16
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: D:\Winny\java\apache-tomcat-6.0.16\temp

Ok, but the question is why when IDEA integrates with Tomcat CATALINA_BASE goes to ".IntelliJIdea80" (together with logs) and CATALINA_HOME goes to the actual Tomcat. I can also view the logs in ".IntelliJIdea80" folder, that's not an issue for me.

If you consider this behavior normal - then be it, but if it's an omission or bug or something .. than I was just pointing that out.

Part of the reason for this special ".IntelliJIdea80" folder is ".IntelliJIdea80\system\tomcat_Unnamed_DBClassifyed9f2a8\*conf*", I suppose.

This is done intentionally in order to deal with read-only TomCat
installation directories.
