I am using slf4j over java util logging. I am trying to place logging.properties file so that it will picked up by my webapp. The following is how my logging.properties file look like:
I am NOT doing -Djava.util.logging.config.file="file_path/logging.properties. Instead I have put the logging.properties in my WEB-INF/classes and included this folder as a class folder in eclipse. I dont know if this is sufficient for things to work.
The log file myApp.log is not getting generated nor any logging happens in it. But anyways, the logging still occurs on the Eclipse console.
I suspect it is not taking this logging.properties file at all. But then I tried a suggestion from the posting - Java Logging - where is my log file? - I can see that it prints the file path with file name.
I will appreciate if some help can be provided in this regard.
NOTE: I am using slf4j over java util logging. Also I am sorry if you think I didn't do enough google search :-)

Fixed the problem. Had to set -Djava.util.logging.config.file= "pathto\WEB-INF\classes\logging.properties in Arguments tab - Open Server->Open Launch Configuration in Eclipse
