In development of our web application there is an
application log file that is created.
In the beginning we put it in
WEB-INF/logs since this was relative to our webapp top directory.
it was easy to find . On weblogic this did not work too well.
When we deployed the directory structure was not expanded.
When we deploy as an expanded it gets copied into the .wl_do_notDelete_blah blah blah directory.
So the question is in the BEA weblogic world where is a standard place to put our logs. Is there a general well know place on a Unix box.
Maybe /var/logs maybe someplace else.
What are other people doing with their own log files.
Thanks in advance

The domain directory is a good place, I think. We usually create a <domaindir>/logs directory and put server logs and stuff in there.
For application logs, the domain directory is the current working directory when you start the server, so new File("logs/myApp.log") should get you there.
Another alternative is to use weblogic.logging.NonCatalogLogger to log to the server log file.
