Hello Robin,

Place logback-access-0.9.13.jar and logback-core-0.9.13.jar under 
$TOMCAT6_HOME/lib/ folder. Place logback-access.xml configuration file under
$TOMCAT6_HOME/conf. A simple config file you can use is:

   <appender name="STDOUT"
       <Pattern>%h %l %u %user %date "%r" %s %b</Pattern>

   <appender-ref ref="STDOUT" />

In $TOMCAT6_HOME/conf/server.xml, declare LogbackValve under Engine, as in

  <Engine name="Catalina" defaultHost="localhost">
    <Valve className="ch.qos.logback.access.tomcat.LogbackValve"/>

Please let us know if it works or if it does not.
