I am trying to use log4j in my Struts application. So far I used the "defaults", i.e.
for initializing the logging system and then I used log.info(), log.debug() etc. The problem is I am getting double posts in my logs. They have the same format, they have the same content. It just logs twice. Why is this happening ? I searched the net and everything pointed to configuration issues when using custom loggers, but i'm not ! Below is my configuration of log4j.properties:
Any ideas ? Is this the way to use Log4J or do I have to write my own class ?
Thanks a lot ! Dan [ May 03, 2007: Message edited by: Daniel Platon ]
Since there is no difference in the way log4j is implemented in a Struts application than it is in any other application I'm moving this to the "Other Frameworks" forum. [ May 04, 2007: Message edited by: Merrill Higginson ]
It seems like you are using quite a old version of log4j.
Anyways I suspect the following might be happening.
If you log a statement from a file say , org.apache.abcd then it qualifies the first and third category that you have configured in your logger and as both the categories are outputting to the same appender , you might be getting two statements for each log.
The OFF level in the following statement is bothering me.
First of all, why would you say I am using and old version ? Thanks for your reply Rahul. The OFF level means "absolutely no output" and it works. I seem to have discovered the problem. I removed the stdout appender from all categories except for the root category and it works now. The problem is I don't know the syntax to make the appenders "not additive" because I don't want the output from my classes to go to stdout

The reason why I said that you are using older version of log4j as in older version category was used and in newer version logger is used.
