I apologise for this off topic question. We have delivered an application using Stripes to the customer. They run it on the Websphere app server. All is good except the log4j generated message is logged in the system log. Something like this "CryptoUtil    W net.sourceforge.stripes.util.Log warn Input was not encrypted with the current encryption key: ..." which is against the customer's deployment policy that all application generated messages should go to the application log,
I assumed that the following would route the Stripes generated messages to the application log but it is not

log4j.appender.logFile.file = /var/logs/application.log

Can someone suggest what is wrong here and how to force Stripes generated logs to go where they should? Thanks,
