I suddenly have a problem where logging in my web app is broken. First the log4j.properties:
This file resides in WEB-INF/classes. When deploying my web app in a Tomcat 5.0.27 catalina.out has the following lines:
... INFO: Installing web application at context path blabla... log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (somepackage.BOLogger). log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.
The BOLogger class is a bean which is initialized when accessing the web app's start JSP. I have absolutely no idea what is going on since usually this message means that log4j can't configure itself because the log4j.properties is at the wrong place or missing. Unfortenately I have only very limited access to the Tomcat (I can only access the logs and my application's folders).
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
