Hello,

Probably it seems like a basic issue but I cannot find the update site for Eclipse log4j plugin. Maybe I use wrong phrases with google :p
Can anyone provide the link to this site to me? I need apache log4j in version 1.2.13.

Eclipse -> Help -> Install new software -> Add -> here I suppose to add the update site which I cannot find...

If you search for the workds: apache log4j you get the first result (v 1.2.15)

...ummm thank you but I need a link to Eclipse update site for Apache log4j, not for manual downloading like a file.


With this link:
http://logging.apache.org/log4j/1.2/download.html
I receive Eclipse message:
No repository round

Maybe you meant some subpage there?


With your next 2 links with cropforge I get the security error from the Firefox and I'm notr sure if I can trust this site..

Are you talking about this plugin? It may not *have* an update site.

In any case, wouldn't it work with whatever version of Log4J your project is using?

If you open this link: http://logging.apache.org/log4j/1.2/download.html you will see that there are links to zip files, I don't know if that's what you need, I don't know if the other site is secure or is just that the certification is not accepeted by Firefox, that also happened to me with the official forum of ExtJS which was completly inofensive, that's up to you.

Try this otherwise: http://mvnrepository.com/artifact/log4j/log4j

Oh! You are talking about a plugin? I was giving you links to the direct log4j libraries! Sorry.

Sorry David, I missed your post.

No, it isn't - I get the same Eclipse message about no repository found.

The log4j plugin.

I am looking for the link which will work when I will pass it to the Eclipse here:
Help -> Install new software -> Add -> (here)

There are at least two log4j plugins for eclipse: the one I linked to, which is a graphical configuration plugin. It doesn't appear to have an update site. There's Log4E, which is something different. Saying "the log4j plugin" isn't specific enough, really.

Thanks for the tip, I didn't know that there are many log4j implementations.

I care about the log4j that has an update site.

If it is possible, Apache log4j would be the best, but only if it has an update site.

You seem to confuse yourself between plugin and library. If you're talking about Auto Update where you can install the log4j library inside your Eclipse, I'm afraid there is none or I probably don't know about it.

Why would you need a plugin, BTW? Isn't log4j simple enough to use unless you need some graphical configuration.

Because I want to make a dependency to log4j plug-in in my own plug-in

Seriously--what plugin are you talking about?

Show me the website of the plugin you're talking about. Show me its information in the Eclipse plugin registry. Show me something that makes me think you're talking about a plugin rather than a library.

I tried to upload for you the log4j jar I have, but the forum restrictions didn't allow me to upload jar file so I changed it to few other formats with the same effect and bang! Short story long, somehow I browsed this log4j jar and it seems that it is bugged.... oh maaaan


I downloaded the good version from here:
http://download.eclipse.org/releases/europa/plugins/org.apache.log4j_1.2.13.v200706111418.jar



And it works!


Thanks for being inquisitive since it forced me to experiment and discover that the wrong puzzle was my own jar

Er, that's just Log4J. It's a "plugin" because that's one way Eclipse provides support for third-party software.

Strange, I am having the same problem. The book suggests that there must be an eclipse plugin with the id org.apache.log4j but it is not installed, and I cannot find it anywhere.
I can see that there are plugins installed such as org.apache.ant, org.apache.lucene, etc, but no log4j, and don't have a clue about how to install it.

As I said earlier--the log4j "plugin" comes with Eclipse, and is simply Log4J. The only way of updating it would be by updating the core Eclipse (as far as I know, anyway).

I am using the Plugin Developer IDE and it does not have org.apache.log4j_...jar but ant-apache-log4j.jar. However, the classic eclipse ide has the org.apache.log4j_...jar, so I copied it into the plugin directory of the Plugin Developer IDE and the error messages are gone.

I also searched for the org.apache.log4j plugin. If your want to use the original one, you should install the WTP plugin with the url http://download.eclipse.org/webtools/updates/.
I only selected "Eclipse Web Developer Tools" under "Web Tools Platform (WTP) 3.1.1" and this installed a bunch of plugins with org.apache.log4j_1.2.13 part of that.
