log4j.properties in wsad

Is there anyone using log4j in wsad apps? Will you enlighten me that where I should put the log4j.properties file so that the wsad test server can pick it up.
I tried to put it under /WEB-INF and /WEB-INF/classes, it doesn't seem to work.
Which directory is the test server's working directory anyway?
Thanks in advance,

We have a seperate 'properties' project that contains all of the properties for various applications (including the log4j.properties file). We then add the /properties directory to the paths for the test server.

That may be a good idea - to put all the properties in a separate project.
The reason my web app doesn't load the log4j.properties is because the wsad has a default ws-commons-logging.jar, and it was used instead of the commons-logging.jar from Jakatar. After I remove ws-commons-logging.jar from the classpath, the commons-loggin.jar from Jakatar is used and the log4j.properties is loaded from /WEB-INF/classes directory as expected.

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
