Hello all,

I am trying to use log4j in my Struts application. So far I used the "defaults", i.e.

for initializing the logging system and then I used, log.debug() etc.
The problem is I am getting double posts in my logs. They have the same format, they have the same content. It just logs twice.
Why is this happening ? I searched the net and everything pointed to configuration issues when using custom loggers, but i'm not !
Below is my configuration of

Any ideas ? Is this the way to use Log4J or do I have to write my own class ?

Thanks a lot !

Since there is no difference in the way log4j is implemented in a Struts application than it is in any other application I'm moving this to the "Other Frameworks" forum.
