I cannot get my log4j to log to a file. It will log to the console. Below is my log4j.xml. Any ideas? Thanks.

<log4j:configuration xmlns:log4j="" debug="false">

<appender name="FILE" class="org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender">
<param name="File" value="c:\log\A3.log"/>
<param name="Append" value="true"/>

<layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">

<param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d{dd MMM yyyy HH:mm:ss} - [%C.%M] - %p - %m%n"/>


<appender name="CONSOLE" class="org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender">
<param name="Target" value="System.err"/>
<param name="Threshold" value="DEBUG"/>

<layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">
<param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d{ABSOLUTE} %-5p [%c{1}] %m%n"/>

<category name="com.enetrix.sis">
<priority value="DEBUG"/>
<appender-ref ref="FILE"/>
<appender-ref ref="CONSOLE"/>

I agree. Here's the link:
