The default logger will write to stdout or whatever you specify with
the -logger option - even the logger doesn't know the name of the file
as Main simply opens that file and redirects System.out to it.  Your
best choice here is to explicitly set a property to the name of the
logfile yourself like Steve suggested.

The XmlLogger is a different beast.  It will use log.xml in the
current working directory unless the property XmlLogger.file has been
set - in which case it will use this value.  Yet another undocumented
magic property.
