0010329: Add ConsoleAppender to display logs in Eclipse
In order to display error logs in Eclipse, we need to make the following:
- Open log4j.lcf (in main dir, not in config)
- Copy all lines with log4j.appender.A1
- Paste them into config/log4j.lcf i.e. after the log4j.appender.R.MaxBackupIndex line
- Add a ", A1" to the first line about rootCategory.

This enables logging to Console (i.e. eclipse console) in addition to any other already configured logging.

We might want to add the A1 lines to the .template without activating them. So the instructions would just be add the part to rootCategory.. If we do this i would rename A1 to C to better state the purpose (ConsoleAppender)
No tags attached.

Note we only want to add the ConsoleAppender for eclipse, normally one does not want to use it with a deployed tomcat, as it will likely output the logs twice (once like normal in openbravo.log, and a second time in catalina.out (which is redirected console)). So we most likely want to only add the ConsoleAppender but do not activate it by default.

Yes, adding this by default would be overkill for production usage.

Rafa: what do you think if we added this commented in the file?

Added proposed change. Add ConsoleAppender config by default, but do not enable it
