I am attempting to log all outgoing web service calls and responses going through axis 1.4.

I have set my file like so:

The log4j properties are definitely being captured, as I get a jf3axis.log file.

However, I don't get the outgoing/incoming web service XML... what am I doing wrong?

I've done logging of this sort in the past but using jax-ws SOAPHandler and SOAPMessageContext. I'm not familiar with Axis but if you could find something equivalent in Axis that will enable you to intercept inbound/outbound soap message, I would recommend using it.
I agree. Here's the link:
