I'm using Tomcat 5.5.25 and log4j-1.2.15 on a WinXP system. I think I have my classpath issues resolved because log4j is writing to my log file that is defined in my log4j.xml file. However, it's writing it to $CATALINA_HOME\bin.
I remember when doing log4j in Websphere, we had to put in a kind of file prefix for our log files, something like '../opt/......my.log'. Is there a similar prefix that is needed in Tomcat, to direct it to my webapp directory? Ideally, I'd like it under /webapps/mywebapp/logs.
