Ceki Gulcu commented on LBCLASSIC-74:

I can reproduce the following exception, under Tomcat 5.0.26 and Tomcat 6.0.18.


After a little analysis, I think the problem is due to the fact that Tomcat saves the session, and when the application
restarts, it deserializes the LoggerTest object which contains a field referencing a logger. However, this field does not 
contain a valid reference to a LoggerContext. 

Problem is solved in revision 1897.

> Hi,
> loggerContext in the Logger class is null after container restart. This will produce a NPE when trying to further use logback.
