Hi All,
How can I configure LOG4J with Tomcat. I assume I need to set system property log4j.configuration=<my log4j xml file>. But where should I do it.

1) Eclipse does not have any place to set it up.
2) Do I need to modify catalina.bat or start.bat file to pass in this system property.
3) Any good to read article on it.

Please let me know. Any plug in to set it up will also help.

Cheers
Vicky

I figured this out for TC5:
- copy log4j.jar and commons-logging.jar to $CATALINE_HOME/common/lib
- copy your log4j.properties (or xml) to $CATALINE_HOME/common/classes

restart tomcat, et voila.

It's very annoying this "log4j does not work on tomcat" issue, especially
since the 'official' tomcat documentation on this topic is wrong
