I would like to use per deployment logging in JBoss 7.2 using log4j. I want to be able to locate my log4j.properties file in a file system location that is accessible via classpath extension to my web app. For extending my app's classpath I am using the module mechanism as described here. The JBoss 7.2 documentation seems to suggest that the log4j.properties file for per deployment logging can only be located in WEB-INF/classes for a WAR artifact. Is it possible for JBoss to find my log4j.properties file in the file system instead of WEB-INF/classes?
