I saw your update on PLUTO-553. I suggest you read the JSR 286 Portlet  
spec. Portlets can access resources using the PortletContext's  
getResource method. This corresponds to the portlet War's servlet  
context. In addition, portlets also have access to the PortalContext.  
It is important to remember that when a portlet war is "deployed" by a  
portal a new servlet gets added by the portal container. This servlet  
"bridges" between the portal and the portlet. Most likely this is  
where Pluto wants the logging framework to use the Portal's class
