As suggested by someone oy you I tried to implemet in my servlet the log4j, but it isn't log anything.
Can anyone of you have look and tell me where the mistake is?

  • first I placed the log4j-1.2.13.jar in the lib folder.
  • then I wrote a configuration file:

  • the folder indicated has write permits,
  • I placed this config. file in the class folder.
  • [list]In my servlet I inserted this code: [/list]
    in the init
    and in the catch statement

    Please, have a look, and tell if I made any mistakes.
    ps: any other suggestions are welcome.

    Thank in advance

    you've specified a directory, but not the file name. I'm not sure about how case sensitive log4J is, but you may want to try:

    'layout can be lowercase, but I'm not sure if the 'MaxFileSize' works with the Daily appender. Or maybe it does.

    I agree. Here's the link:
