I'm trying to configure the Jakarta Commons Logging library in my web app. I have a commons-logging.properties file in the classes directory, and it causes the SimpleLog logger to be selected, which is what I want. To further configure SimpleLog, I have a simplelog.properties file, also in the classes directory, just like the docs mention it. But that file is completely ignored, and all the default settings are used. Has anyone successfully configured SimpleLog with a simplelog.properties file, and can give me some hints on how to do that?
I suppose I could read the contents of simplelog.properties at web app startup time, and add them to the system properties directly, but that seems unnecessary work when it apparently should work out of the box.
Many thanks in advance. [ November 23, 2006: Message edited by: Ulf Dittmer ]
