log4j runs great and builds a log flie.
I want the same log entries to echo to the screen as well as have them written to a file.

I can't find a way to do this.

Just create 2 appenders (1 file, 1 stdout), this should be working fine.

If you need more help, it will be useful to know how you configure log4j (property file, xml file, in Java code).
