What version of Jboss are you using? We use 4.3.0EAP and utilise a jboss-log4j.xml file in the $JBOSS_HOME/<server>/conf directory.

Hi Amir,

Are you supplying your own log4j.xml/properties for each application you deploy? Or are you using the 'central' jboss log4j configuration file?

Thanks alot Martijn.
i have solved the problem by using 'central' jboss log4j configuration file. and redirect it to my specified location.
