Your question is not clear. Presumably if the web-app is already using log4j then it already has a configuration file.

You say you have to deploy a jar file in this web-app. I don't know what that means. Perhaps you're including some extra functionality or something. But whatever it means, if code from that jar file is going to be executed, and if it wants to use log4j, then it's going to use the configuration file which is already there. Only one configuration file will be used -- I suppose that was the main point of your question, wasn't it?
