    Extending log4j Logger and using JMSAppender

    Kristoffer Gronowski Newbie

      Hi!

      I have seen a previous discussion about how to use the JMSAppender since the jbossmq is not started yet.
      The solution was to write an own MBean that ads the JMSAppender later on in the startup phase.

      But it would be much nicer if there is a way to do this just by extending the log4j config file.
      Isn't there a way to specify a log4j config file in a sar,war and jar in the META-INF directory when you deploy a new module?

      The same goes for to write an own Logger. When the JBoss starts i get a ClassNotFound exception.
      It seams that the my jarfile in the lib directory is not appended to the classpath. I have seen that there has been some changes to this field during the betatesting of JBoss 3.0.0
      I'm running the release version of 3.0.0

      Any guesses?
      Regards Kristoffer!
