I want certain logs(irrespective of log levels) in console and certain others in File.BUT NOT IN BOTH.
Is it possible to implement the same using log4j?

Yes, that's possible. Take a look at the log4j manual on the project site. Pay attention to the additive (or was it additivity) attribute on the category/logger element in log4j.xml.

Thanks Jai. I got it done by having the additive="false" property.
I agree. Here's the link:
