NX: logging with file handler

Hi folks again,
I am using the following file, which as you can see assigns a file handler. Unfortunately for me, although I get console messages with this file, I don�t get the same messages in the logging file URLy.log. I do other junk in URLy.log but these are not related to my project or the messages on the console!

# To also add the FileHandler, use the following line instead.
handlers= java.util.logging.FileHandler, java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler
.level= ALL

# default file output is in user's home directory.
java.util.logging.FileHandler.pattern = /Java/CERT/log/URLy.log
java.util.logging.FileHandler.limit = 50000
java.util.logging.FileHandler.count = 1
#java.util.logging.FileHandler.level = FINEST
java.util.logging.FileHandler.formatter = java.util.logging.SimpleFormatter
# Limit the message that are printed on the console to INFO and above.
java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler.level = INFO
java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler.formatter = java.util.logging.SimpleFormatter

Scanning the posts on this forum, I have seen strange and wonderful things in the FileHandler.pattern i.e. %h/java%u.log which I guess creates a logger recipient file called u.log in the home directory/java, but what is %t\urlyBirdServer\%u.log? I am assuming that my ignorance of these matters could account for the missing messages. I also can�t figure out where the messages that do appear in URLy.log are coming from.
Any ideas on this would be appreciated. It's amazing that something as simple as logging should turn into such a headache!
I agree. Here's the link:
