This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
I have an application which writes every processing tasks to a file.
The application is in an executable jar format. In windows, it's working perfectly and the log file is also being successfully written unto.
When I deployed (copy-paste) the jar to linux, and run it by java -jar command, it still worked fine. However, the logging functionality didn't work.
I'm looking at folder permissions so I changed the folder permissions where the log file is supposed to land. I used the System.getProperty(user.dir) as the folder where the log file will be stored. There are no exceptions being thrown as well so I don't know where the error is coming from...
This and all others, I couldn't figure out why log file isn't being created.
I hope you can help me out here. Thanks in advance!

For some unknown reason, it has suddenly worked. I am not really sure if this solved the problem: I did a very simple java program in the same folder that just writes a file in that current folder.
Then when I tried my application again, it mysteriously logs to the file now.
