Subject Re: FW: DailyRollingFileAppender for a Struts Web Application using WAS 6.0 and Struts 1.1
Date Wed, 23 Jan 2008 17:10:32 GMT

java ... -Dlog.dir=/my/preferred/path WAS

In log4j.properties....

log4j.appender.MyAppender.File=${log.dir}/mylogfile.log


Now you can use the same log file for all environments.  Just make sure you 
set the system property at startup.
