Subject Initialization Question

Hey all,

A quick question.

We've been using Log4j for the Expresso project since before it moved to 
Jakarta, and it has been extremely faithful.  I've been working on how to 
better set up xml configuration with log4j since DOM configuration has 
obviously matured greatly since we first dealt with it. :)

The only reason left for using a custom configurator AFAICT is because we 
expand various properties in the DOM configuration.  For example, we define 
a LOG_DIR property that my configuration loader expands with our desired 

However, I would LOVE to see our own custom configurator done away with 
alltogether.  I realized that when installing JBoss on my system, that I 
never had to modify the log4j.xml file so that it starting logging in the 
right location, so I took a look at this and found:

<appender name="FILE" 
<param name="File" value="${jboss.server.home.dir}/log/server.log"/>


Does log4j now support 'ANT-like' properties expansions like that listed 
above where I can set Java properties and have it expanded properly in 
DOMConfigurator or is JBoss' custom DailyRollingFileAppender doing this??

If log4j DOESN'T do it already, may I ask for it to be put on the feature 
request list? ;)

Thanks for your time in advance!
