i have a jar file which i need to deploy in a web app. the web app (3rd party) already have log4 configuration. can i have log4j.properties in my jar and save the logs in different directory ? since the jar is in the web app, im a little confused about which log file it is going to fetch.. appreciate any help !!

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?
