This might sound silly but we're trying to explore the possibility of having log4j entries in file with a name other than log4j.properties such that it will cause minimal changes to our deployment process. Can log4j entries exist in a file that is named anything other than log4j.properties?
Have performed a small test where log4j entries were part of a file with name testlogconfig.properties on the classpath but the entries are not read. The moment we rename this file from testlogconfig.properties to log4j.properties it works.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
