Hi there,
here is the thing, I have to deploy a web app and the the log4j.properties file is created by the client so I dont have control over it.
Their properties file is like this:

log4j.rootCategory= FILE

!-----------FILE--------------!
log4j.category.FILE=DEBUG
log4j.appender.FILE=org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAp pender
log4j.appender.FILE.File=${catalina.base}/logs/rcweb.log
log4j.appender.FILE.MaxFileSize=1024KB
log4j.appender.FILE.MaxBackupIndex=10
log4j.appender.FILE.layout=org.apache.log4j.Patter nLayout
log4j.appender.FILE.layout.ConversionPattern=%-2d{dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm:ss} [%t] %5p %c:%L - %m%n

And in my classes I do something like this:
private static final Logger LOG = Logger.getLogger(MaterialController.class);
LOG.info("my log");

But the log file has never been created.

I did the test and changed the log4j.properties file and deployed in my computer adding the following line:
log4j.logger.br.com.golive.requisicaoCompras=DEBUG

This works, but I cant use the file like this.

Is there any ideas?

Thanks
