First, I've been trying to figure out a way to rotate catalina.out and purge cascade.log and other files that are older than 30 days. Catalina.out grows dramatically and it appears that anything written to it is also written to a catalina..log file as well, so how do I purge catalina.out at least weekly, if not daily? The older logfiles need to be removed periodically as well.

Second, what is the status of Cascade support for JRE 7? JRE 1.6 is End of Life this month and we are pushing to get all our applications updated to Java 1.7.

Thanks!

    Hi there,

    Apologies for the delayed response on this discussion.

    What O/S are you running? If you are on Linux/*nix, the solution generally involves a separate script (similar to the one seen here).

    Second, what is the status of Cascade support for JRE 7? JRE 1.6 is End of Life this month and we are pushing to get all our applications updated to Java 1.7.

    We're currently testing Java 1.7 and should have support for it very soon. Please keep an eye on the release notes for any releases in the near future to see when it will be supported.

    Let me know if you have any further questions!
