Subject Re: using commons-logging in webapp w/ log4j, can't find my properties
Date Sat, 14 Oct 2006 18:32:56 GMT

    Thanks-- I'm using Tomcat 5.5.17... I guess one question is how do I 
log the logger? There must be some way to see where it is looking for 
the appropriate properties file. I imagine that commons-logging classes 
can see the log4j classes in the same classpath and then start looking 
for the properties file in a few places...

    Thanks, Jason
