Hi friends,
I am developing a web application with Struts 2. I have been using log4j for logging. when i tried to use the same in struts 2 application. it doesn't seem to work. I am sure that i am doing something wrong with the way i give the configuration. Can someone tell me a link or site where i can learn it? i have searched in Struts 2 documentation as well. Here is my log4j.xml below. I am using the logger named "com.keerthi". the log file seems to be created but the debug statements are not getting written in sample.log file

Any suggestions or help is highly appreciated.
Thank you for your time,

Hi Friends,

Just wanted to post my work status.I have changed the log4j.xml a bit like setting all internal struts packages level to "OFF", since i got some loads of logs from these packages. Even now, the sample.logs is created but there is no logs for debug statements from com.keerthi package. it would be great, if someone can help me to resolve it. Thank you

The logger name does not have to be the package name, though the naming convention is that one uses the package name.
When you create a logger instance in your code, are you using the package name?
You can find the documentation for Log4j here.

Thank you, Joe for the reply. I use package name for instantiating the loggers in each class.
I agree. Here's the link:
