Logging problems with tomcat in a docker container

I am trying to deploy a web app using a docker container, which i managed to do, the problem is with the configuration of the tomcat server within the container which behaves a bit differently from running the tomcat server directly on my os. I can’t manage to find the the catalina.out file anywhere even tho the catalina.sh explicitly creates it :
if [ -z “$CATALINA_OUT” ] ; then
I altered the path to use a known path but to no avail. Note that adding logging.properties helps create the catalina log but when set to rotatable dates all log files created, i need to a standard catalina.out file which I run scripts on to analyse my web app.

Please note that I am relatively new to working with containers and tomcat.
Thank you for you help !
