Put it in the WEB-INF/classes directory of your web application.

The log file?
Did you mean the config file (log4j.properties)?

if you're talking about the output.log file, what operating system are you running... if it's linux or a unix, i'd probably put it w/ the rest of the log files in /var/log.

if it's windows... noooooooo idea.

I meant the log4j.properties, yes. But probably I misread the original question, which asked about the log file. Meaning the output from log4j, I suppose. I make log4j write that outside the web application.
