RAD7 - Trying to get log4j to work

Websphere development environment: Version:

Problem: RAD7 is using its own logging and tracing defined in the "troubleshooting>logs and trace" of the admin console and the is being ignored by the logger.

Problem statements:
1. log4j.1.2.8 is on the classpath of my war module, and set on the j2ee module dependency.
2. is kept in a configuration folder that i hold all my properties files in. I defined this folder in the admin console on the following path classpath;

Application servers > server1 > Process Definition > Java Virtual Machine

I put the path to the configuation folder there under "classpath" just like i did in RAD6.

3. My application uses parent last defined in the application.xml of the EAR file.

It seems like the RAD7 logger has a higher precendence than the log4j logger. I would appreciate any suggestions to help get my LOG4J running in RAD.

Thanks in advance.
