Subject Re: where do you put the log4j.properties in J2EE?
Date Tue, 07 Feb 2006 12:28:06 GMT
Hi Kameron,

In case you are using an application server with your system, I would
suggest you place your log4j configuration file in the app. servers
configuration directory. For example, in case of using JBoss, you may
place it jboss-4.0.1sp1\server\..\conf directory.

Hope that helps,
