Yes, it is possible to send log messages to more than one destination. You have to configure appropriate Appenders in the log4j configuration file and you'll be all set.

In the Log4J distribution there's an example to show multiple destination configurations, It is configured to send messages to a File and GUI at the same time. So you may want to look for examples to look for JDBCAppenders.

Hope this helps,
