Log4j configuration using log4j.xml with WSAD 5.1.2

Log4j configuration using log4j.xml with WSAD 5.1.2

Log4j configuration using log4j.xml with WSAD 5.1.2

I have application having logging details configured through log4j.xml file.I am using a WSAD 5.1.2 IDE.The log4j.xml file is placed inside a war file under javasource directory.
Now I need to externalize the log4j.xml file to my file system.
My question is how does the log4j API recognizes the path of the log4j.xml file.In otherwords which class in the Log4j API reads the configuration details from the xml file at runtime and who provides the path of the log4j.xml file to the class in the API.

Can someone guide me on this?

Thanks in advance.
