I am pretty new to log4j and have a question that should be easy.  I am using log4j in a web (java servlets) environment.

1)  How do I pass in variables?  I have an app that uses the JDBCAppender and would like to pass in the connection values.  Is there an easy way to do this?  These values could be different for each client that access the Servlet(s).  Is there a pattern for this type of scenario?

At this point, I have to hardcode the URL, user, and password values in the log4j.xml file.  I tried using MDC, but this seems to work in the "ConversionPattern" param for log files and the "sql" param name for the JDBCAppender.  It does not work for the "URL", "user", and "password" param values (does not change to MDC value).

Any help would be appreciated,
