Use an alternative logging configuration file

By default, the WebLogic Remote Console uses the file inside the runnable/console-backend-server-{version}.jar file.

If the default configuration is sufficient, then you don’t need to do anything. However, if you want to tweak the logger configuration without regenerating the runnable/console-backend-server-{version}.jar file, you can pass the -Djava.util.logging.config.file=<> Java system property when starting the console.

For example:


If there is a problem using the specified path, then the inside the runnable/console-backend-server-{version}.jar file is used. Either way, a log message is written to STDOUT stating which file was used:

Logging configured using /gitlab-odx/weblogic/console-backend/runnable/etc/


Logging configured using /
