The log4j jar should be part of the lib folder of the PU jar.
You can also place such third party libraries within the \gigaspaces-xap-premium-7.0.1-ga\lib\optional\pu-common folder. This will avoid the need to bundle these with the PU jar/war and will shorten the deployment time.

The log4j.xml or log4j.properties file should be placed at the lib folder within a jar file.

I am using Logback which uses a logback.xml file for the configuration.. I tried your suggestion as far as the jar file. It does not pick-up the configuration file. Any idea where this should go ?

The logback.xml file placed at the lib folder within a jar file.

Can you be specific about which jar the log4j.properties (or logback.xml) file should be placed in? We have tried putting it in the /lib directory of a PU that we then deployed, but it didn't work.
