Hi
Thank you for reading my post.
I have a log4j.properties which does not function correctly.
i want all log messages to go to a file like: messages.log but it append them to console instead of FileAppender.

here is the log4j properties file:



thanks

Other than getting a warning, your log4j.properties file worked for me. It wrote to messages.log in the directory I was running the java command from. I am using version 1.2.14.

log4j:WARN No such property [target] in org.apache.log4j.FileAppender.


Is it really using the properties file you think it is?

Try adding log4j.debug=true to the properties file or a system property to the java call (it will put out some internal debug info to the console including how it is getting configured):

-Dlog4j.debug

[edited to add version number]

Thank you for reply.
It is fixed now, but another problem that i faces is like this:
The logger log hibernate messages but not my own message.
here is the code portion that i used to log some messges to this log file.
but my own messages are not in the log file and nor in the console

here is my code portion:


why it does not add my own messages to log file?

thanks

your root logger (so rootlogger and everything else that isn't specified) is set to WARN level so debug and info won't be included
