The file path is mentioned in the log4j property file.
If the particular directory is not available, log4j is throwing FileNotFound Exception. So, Is there anyway log4j automatically creates the directory path when the mentioned path is not available?.

Well, as you can see, it doesn't. You could check the documentation for that appender but I doubt you will find any method to specify "Create the directory if it doesn't exist".
However it shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes to create the directory. I would just do that rather than hunting down the docs.
It is sorta covered in the
