I have 2 war files, a.war and b.war, both deployed in an ear file. (They need to share session data) Each war has it's own log4j jar and xml file yet only the xml file from a.war is loaded. Is there a way I can have both loaded or is it better to combine the xml files and put them at the ear level instead of each war? We may be adding other war files to the ear so log4j.xml file may be changing.

Thanks.

It's better to combine them into one file at the "ear" level. At least, that works and what you're doing now doesn't work, so that's better in my book.

Depending on what web application server you are using, it might be possible to arrange things so that each "war" ran in a separate class loader (this is what you would have to do).

That's what I did. It works and it's a lot simpler than messing with the classloader.

Thanks.
