Try this,

  1. Each application must use its own log4j. You can achieve this by placing log4j.jar in WEB-INF/lib of each application.
  2. In each log4j's configuration file (default location is WEB-INF/classes), specify the log file name, e.g. log4j.appender.AppLog.File=${catalina.home}/logs/app1.log.
  3. Add swallowOutput="true" for each context so stdout, stderr will go to your own log.

We do this on Tomcat 5.5 but I 2 think it should work on 6.0 also.

EDIT: Here 1 is our META-INF/context.xml,

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Context override="true" swallowOutput="true" useNaming="false">
  <Manager pathname=""/>
