I am working on Eclipse IDE
I encountered the following problem
-----------------------
1) if i use the absolute path for the parameter File in appender like below
<appender name="ROLLING" class="org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender">
<param name="File" value="D:/sample.log"/>

Then i am able to see the log file at that path.

<appender name="ROLLING" class="org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender">
<param name="File" value="sample.log"/>

I could not able to find the file no where in the drive where the Web-App is running.

I could not able to find out why it is behaving like this?
Can anyone please guide me on how to resolve the above issue?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
