java configuration management on multiple machines

I'm trying to find a good way to manage java configurations for apps that are used on multiple machines.

JFig looks interesting, but it doesn't look like it's very widely used. If there a more widely used alternative?

This is for multiple uses, but my immediate concern is to have different log4j settings on different machines.

    If you have the same set of configuration for all your apps then you can use either a central location (and use URL to point to the resources)
    or look at disk sync utilities.

    Jmx becomes a standard way to administrate and monitor your Java applications (it is already a standard for j2ee 1.4 JSR 177).
    It is part of Java 1.5 but can be used as a seperate package for earlier JDKs.
