[JDK 11] RFR: 8195096: Exception printed on console with custom LogManager on starting Apache Tomcat

Looking at: https://github.com/apache/tomcat/blob/trunk/java/org/apache/juli/ClassLoaderLogManager.java it looks like code in "readConfiguration(InputStream, ClassLoader)" does the digit translation.
The tomcat developers should be able to move some of that code to CLLM.getProperty to do the translation.

If they don't want JUL to create the root handlers then another option would be to alter CLLM.getProperty to determine if the j.ul.LogManager is trying to initialize ".handers" before CLLM.readConfiguration is called and return null to effectively disable creating handlers at that time.  My guess is  that this change is probably more compatible with what was already happening in Tomcat.

For the record, I updated the JBS issue [1] with Jason's suggestion
and asked to get feedback from the submitter.
