ignoring log4j.properties

ignoring log4j.properties

Is there way to keep log4j.properties on the classpath but to have a given java program reference a different properties file (i.e. log4j.blah.properties) and ignore log4j.properties.

When I try to tell it to use this different file in my code, it still references log4j.properties because it's on the classpath and is referenced automatically.

Again, I know how to make log4j reference a custom named properties file.  What I am asking is if I can do that while keeping log4j.properties intact yet ignored.

Any advice?


RE: ignoring log4j.properties

Thanks for prompt response, but if you look at my question again, you'll see that I know how to make it use a different properties file.  My issue is being able to do that while keeping log4j.properties on the classpath and yet being able to ignore it for this particular Java program.
