Subject Separate configs for different webapps
Date Fri, 08 Aug 2003 16:36:50 GMT

I am probably asking a stupid question here because I am new to log4j and

I have two webapps running under tomcat (single JVM) that are sharing common
libraries.  I am trying to find a way to set up the logging properties such
that the two webapps have different settings (i.e., different appenders,
layouts, levels, etc.).  I've tried putting a log4j.properties file in the
classes directory for each of my webapps, but it seems it only automatically
picks up the one associated with whichever webapp is started first by tomcat
(the other one is never loaded).  If I put an explicit call in both webapps
to the PropertyConfigurator, it seems that whichever one loads last
overwrites the previous settings.  Can I get different settings for each of
my webapps somehow?
