Doesn't look like, what you could do is overriding
DOMConfigurator::configureAndWatch from domconfigurator.cpp with an
own implementation, which doesn't use the default XMLWatchdog, but
again another subclass of those from your which overrides the method
doOnChange. Both implementations seem fairly easy and you only need to
call the base of doOnChange and afterwards your code to change the

If you don't want to take this effort your best bet would be to not
use hard coded filenames, but simply something like environment
variables which can be set differently in the rpogram using your log
configuration. In the following example ${mandant} is coming from the
env set by the application:

                <rollingPolicy  class="org.apache.log4j.rolling.TimeBasedRollingPolicy">
                        <param  name="FileNamePattern"
