Merb on Websphere using RackServlet writes production.log to "/" (root of machine's filesystem)

JRuby 1.1.3
Rack 0.3.0
Merb 0.9.4
Warbler 0.9.10

I have an app. that appears to be “successfully” deployed to Websphere
through warbler, but my production.log file is being written to the
machine’s root directory “/”, instead of to the log directory under
WEB-INF. I think I saw something while I was Googling about this a
couple of days ago, but I can’t remember - has anyone experienced it?

Thanks,
Wes

Yikes! This is probably an artifact of the call to
ServletContext.getRealPath not returning anything useful (e.g., null).
I have it on my list to work up a different mechanism for determining
the location of RAILS_ROOT.

Here’s my MERB_ROOT/config/environments/production.rb:

Merb.logger.info(“Loaded PRODUCTION Environment…”)
Merb::Config.use { |c|
c[:exception_details] = false
c[:reload_classes] = false
c[:log_level] = :error
c[:log_file] = Merb.log_path + “/production.log”
}

I could swear that when I first started deploying into the container
that the log file would be in the correct place, but now it’s not. I
suspect that perhaps Merb.log_path evaluates to nil, although I haven’t
checked yet.

Can you file a bug for this and/or add something to the wiki? I suspect
this could bite others using WebSphere very easily.

If I modify my production.rb slightly, like so - the logging occurs in
the log directory, as you would expect:

Merb.logger.info(“Loaded PRODUCTION Environment…”)
Merb::Config.use { |c|
c[:exception_details] = false
c[:reload_classes] = false
c[:log_level] = :debug
#c[:log_file] = Merb.log_path + “/production.log”
c[:log_file] = “log/production.log”
}
