I set up log4j in WebSphere just like anywhere else, I'd imagine. Create a servlet with init method:

public void init()
{
String prefix = getServletContext().getRealPath("/");
String file = getInitParameter("log4j_conf");
if (file != null)
{
PropertyConfigurator.configure(prefix + file);
}

}

and then in the web.xml file make sure load-on-startup is set to 1 and the log4j_conf init param value is set to the path to the log4j_conf.properties file. No worries...

hi

i doesnt get any error!! in the log4j.properties file , I mentioned the file name of the logger. But, that file is not at all there when I run the pgm. Should I create a blank file before starting the Application???
