When using log4j to asynchronously log messages to a local log file, will the order of the log messages be preserved? (i.e. earliest time stamp will always be first and latest will be last)

I expect that would depend on how you implemented it. Do you have a specific implementation of asynchronous logging you wanted to ask about?

Well, the documentation doesn't specify the answer to your question. There's mention of a "buffer" which to me sounds like an orderly queue of messages, but if that isn't enough then you could examine the source code.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
