Sorry, I haven't had time to look at/do this yet.
The good news is that JBoss3.0 has been using log4j 1.2 for
about a month now.

Ceki and I agreed that the best approach is to select a repository
based on the classloader. Since each jar in jboss gets its own
classloader it would be possible to separate the application logging
from its support jars.

I image struts defines categories/loggers of the form
org.apache.struts.* (this is a guess)
you can either suppress or redirect the messages using log4j.xml
