Subject RE: [OT?] WebSphere and commons-logging

Yeah, it doesn't help because there is a commons-logging.properties file in
the WAS classpath already!  As long as you have the classloader mode set to
parent first, it will find the IBM version first and, thus, use the IBM log.

Good thought, though, and I did neglect to mention that creating this file
was also a necessary step.
