The JDK logger uses the logging.properties file in the JRE lib directory. However I would like to use my own logging.properties file as part of the application that uses Java Web Start. This config file will be part of the application jar file.

The usual way to specify the logging properties file is by using the -D parameter

-Djava.util.logging.config.file=logging.properties

How do I specify my own logging.properties file for Java Web Start? TIA.

Hello,

Try to add the "java.util.logging.config.file" system property which points to your own logging configuration file. Your configuration file could be packed inside some of the downloaded jars.

Regards,
Cristian

Hi again,

The system properties are added as below:

<resources>
[....]
<property name="java.util.logging.config.file" value="/com/company/bla/bla/log.properties">
</property>

[....]
</resources>
