Solving Error - log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger

This log4j error is probably the simplest and most common problem ever encountered in Java EE development history.

log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoader).
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.
Actually it's not even a real problem, but it can be confusing at first. Understandably so because the error message doesn't give any hint over how to "initialize the log4j system properly".

Fortunately, it's very easy. Just save the following code as Put it inside your classpath root that is WEB-INF/classes. If you're using Maven that would be src/main/resources.

log4j.rootLogger=info, R
log4j.appender.R.layout.ConversionPattern=%-5p %-30.30c{1} %x - %m%n

For maven I would recommend to save the file to src/test/resources. So it is active in eclipse and for maven tests but does not go into the jar.
For production use the should be at a place on the classpath where you can change it easily.
