I have a project that uses Hibernate. I want ALL (=DEBUG) the logs (mine and those of Hibernate) sent to console and I want only the INFO logs of Hibernate sent to a file.
Can anyone help me with the log4j.properties file?

This is what I have, but isn't doing what I want:

Well, you don't actually say what it is doing wrong. I can guess that you want to log ONLY info level not info level and above. (Your configuration specified info level and above).

As stated in the FAQ,

If you must filter events by exact level match, then you can attach a LevelMatchFilter
to any appender to filter out logging events by exact level match.

To use filters you should use the .xml configuration file instead of .properties.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
