I created a My Logger class which holds object of java.util.Logger and in the constructor i am adding FileHandler to Logger.

Now this logger i used in all my class for logging purpose.

It seems that it is creating new new log files every time. When I run the my application it creates three log files at the same time.

Please let me know how to over come this.

I think it'd make sense to post the actual code (and configuration, if any) you're using.

If you are having to change your code to make it work the way you like, I suggest you take a quick look at Apache's log4j

It is widely used, more flexible, and there is an active support mailing list.
