JDK Logger

The JDK logger uses the file in the JRE lib directory. However I would like to use my own file as part of the application that uses Java Web Start. This config file will be part of the application jar file.

The usual way to specify the logging properties file is by using the -D parameter

How do I specify my own file for Java Web Start? TIA.
