Currently, if an application file isn't found, the following DEBUG message is printed:
Could not find an application specification for application servlet <servlet-name>
Considering the ramifications of not finding an application file, this message should be upgraded to WARN and changed to the following so users won't get too concerned if they truly don't have one:
Could not find an application specification for application servlet <servlet-name>. Continuing using defaults.
The current DEBUG level leaves users with either a tremendous amount of messages to sift through, or no indication of a very important aspect of their runtime configuration when the usual problem is a naming discrepancy between the servlet name and the application file name.
