Sure, it was more of an option for convenience, rather than a demand.
Some answerers might prefer it, since email is so inefficient for this
kind of discussion.  My offer to post the results back here shows I
wasn't attempting to replace this list as a forum.

Oh you're right.  The last 2 messages of the thread didn't appear in
my initial search.  Sorry about that.  True, not to my satisfaction.

Nice.  Virtual Class Loader seems like a good general solution to the
problem that's been un-necessarily introduced by JULI, as well as many
other similar problems.

No thanks.  The WAR is the distributable unit.  All
deployment-specific information must persist in the container between
re-deploys, and therefore must not live in the WAR itself.  Why the
creators of JULI thought it would be a great idea to require a
WEB-INF/classes/logger.properties is beyond my comprehension.


cheers,
David.
