Subject RE: Appender configuration question
Date Wed, 23 Apr 2008 13:11:23 GMT
It is not recommended to include the log4j.xml into a jar file, especially not for third party
library. Therefore the best way to solve your problem is either to remove the file from the
jar or - even better - ask the vendor of the library to do that.

If both is not possible, then you can try following:
- manipulate the class path in order that your log4j.xml is found before the one of the other
- your own code should accesses the log4j framework before the library does, i.e. within a
static initializer of your main class.
