Framework version:1.5.0
Platform you're using:MacOS 10.13.4

Reproduction steps:

Run a project with intellij idea with run config:

main class:play.server.Server
VM option:-Dapplication.path=. -Dlog4j.debug'

add this line to application.conf

and put this file to conf/

Expect: log4j use this file 'a.log4j.properties' in the conf dir.At least if I call Logger.init(), it will use this file.
Result: log4j use the file in 'jar:file:/some/path/play-1.5.0/framework/play-1.5.0.jar!/log4j.properties', call Logger.init() nothing happened.

Log is

log4j: Trying to find [log4j.xml] using context classloader sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader@14dad5dc.
log4j: Trying to find [log4j.xml] using sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader@14dad5dc class loader.
log4j: Trying to find [log4j.xml] using ClassLoader.getSystemResource().
log4j: Trying to find [log4j.properties] using context classloader sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader@14dad5dc.
log4j: Using URL [jar:file:/Users/xxxx/install_tools/play-1.5.0/framework/play-1.5.0.jar!/log4j.properties] for automatic log4j configuration.
log4j: Reading configuration from URL jar:file:/xxxx/install_tools/play-1.5.0/framework/play-1.5.0.jar!/log4j.properties


I think the reason is in the java file framework/src/play/Logger.java:63 and 68

if the current thread is not the thread load this class, it cant find the resource.

<h2>Play framework</h2>

Play makes it easier to build Web applications with Java. It is a clean alternative to bloated Enterprise Java stacks. It focuses on developer productivity and targets RESTful architectures. Learn more on the <a href="http://www.playframework.org">http://www.playframework.org</a> website.<br><br>

<h2>Source code is hosted on github</h2>Check out our repository at <a href="http://github.com/playframework/play">http://github.com/playframework/play</a><br><br>

<h2>Contributing, creating a patch</h2> Please read the <a href="http://play.lighthouseapp.com/projects/57987/contributor-guide">contributor guide</a><br><br>

<h2>Reporting Security Vulnerabilities</h2> Since all bug reports are public, please report any security vulnerability directly to <em>guillaume dot bort at gmail dot com</em>.<br><br>

<h2>Creating a bug report</h2> Bug reports are incredibly helpful, so take time to report bugs and request features in our ticket tracker. We’re always grateful for patches to Play’s code. Indeed, bug reports with attached patches will get fixed far quickly than those without any.<br><br>

Please include as much relevant information as possible including the exact framework version you're using and a code snippet that reproduces the problem.<br><br>

Don't have too much expectations. Unless the bug is really a serious "everything is broken" thing, you're creating a ticket to start a discussion. Having a patch (or a branch on Github we can pull from) is better, but then again we'll only pull high quality branches that make sense to be in the core of Play.
