Hi, I am using Log4j for my applications logging. I need assitance for two of my problems.

1. I keep getting the following errors on the console

My file is located in the default source package and here is the code.

And is here is the code of my class using it

All my logging is working fine but I dont know why I am still getting these messages.

2. Secondly, this messages keeps printing on the console like 100 times in a single request

I tried to stop that logging by setting the level of my root logger to WARN and created my own logger 'com' for debug logging and set it at the top of the level heiarchy. But I am unable to stop it. Is there any other way to avoid this message from printing because its hard to find the log mesages I printed from my code.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Hi Mr. Chan,

I think you need to specify absolute path for you file. It should be something like this:


I hope this works

Hey.... For which version of Struts you are using?

The below info is for Struts 2
1) I had placed my file in src folder.
2) In web.xml include this code
