log4j.properties file content as follows:


log4j.rootLogger=INFO, stdout

#Appender: stdout

log4j.appender.stdout=org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender
log4j.appender.stdout.Target=System.out
log4j.appender.stdout.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
##log4j.appender.stdout.ConversionPattern=[%5p] %d{mm:ss} (%F:%M:%L) %n%m%n%n
log4j.appender.stdout.layout.ConversionPattern=%t %-5p %c{2} - %m%n


#Appender: file

log4j.appender.file=org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender
log4j.appender.file.maxFileSize=5MB
log4j.appender.file.maxBackupIndex=5
log4j.appender.file.File=dbwlog.log
log4j.appender.file.threshold=INFO
log4j.appender.file.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.file.layout.ConversionPattern=%d{ABSOLUTE} %5p %c{1}:%L - %m%n
#log4j.rootLogger=DEBUG,file


logging file dbwlog.log is in SRC folder only.

Here, two appender are used. if file appender is removed the program working file and content logged in console properly. When try to add log to file following error:
Following is snap shot of console.. last two line is console logging working fine.
