log4j: where to put properties file?

Hello,

My application is using a jar file MyJar.jar that uses log4j (I have the
latest release of log4j).
I have put both MyJar.jar and log4j.jar in a directory in my classpath. I
have also
put the file "log4j.properties" into this same directory.

My log4j.properties file reads:
# Default Logging Configuration

log4j.rootLogger=INFO, stdout

#to increase logging level

#log4j.logger.org.dcm4cheri=DEBUG

#to decrease logging level

#log4j.logger.org.dcm4cheri=ERROR

log4j.appender.stdout=org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppe nder

log4j.appender.stdout.layout=org.apache.log4j.Patt ernLayout

log4j.appender.stdout.layout.ConversionPattern=%d{ ABSOLUTE} %-5p %x - %m\n

When I run the program, I get the following warning:
log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger
(org.dcm4cheri.server.ServerImpl).
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

log4j.properties needs to be on the classpath where log4j can find it.

You may also specify the location of the properties by a system property :

java -Dlog4j.configuration=file:///path/to/log4j.properties MyApplication

(is that system property necessary or only optional ?)

Thanks for your help, guys.

My error actually, the folder with the file was not actually in my
classpath.
