Hi all,

In my EJB 2.0 web application I have used log4j for java files as well as in jsp files of .war.
And most important thing my log4j.properties file is not in the .ear.
It is in another zip file outside application(.ear).
My question is how do my web application(.ear) will recognize the log4j.properties file which is outside .ear?
Where do I need to refer that properties file and how(which is inside a zip)?

The log4j.properties needs to be on the CLASSPATH of your application, if the log4j.properties in your other zip file is accesible in a CLASSPATH manner, then you'll be OK. I'm doubting that it will pick up a properties file in a ZIP archive though.
