I couldn't really decide which forum to put this in, so this one sounds as good as any.
I've been tooling around a bit with Jakarta's log4j, and it seems to be an awesome utility to have. Needless to say, I'm now interested in using this library in applications. For the most part I understand how to make the log4j configuration file visible to servlets by deploying it to WEB-INF/classes and using <init-params> from the descriptor to pass the path to the servlet. However, this what about EJBs? Is there an industry standard method of passing this path information to the EJBs via a deployment descriptor or a JBoss deployment? Or is it just as easy to pass the Configurator.configure() method an absolute string to a .properties file deployed with an application?
Any pointers or documentation rescources would be greatly appreciated.
I think I found the solution to logging seperate applications through seperate log4j instances vice the container wide logger.
It is here.
I think I need an aspirin now......
