log4j logging to database

Good Day..

I am trying out some example regarding logging in the database from JDBCAppender of Log4J from the book that I am reading but can't seem to make it work.

Here is the code where the book tried extending the JDBCAppender

...and here's my modified properties file

From what I am seeing, it was able to instantiate the class CustomJDBCAppender because the constructor was called but the overriden method was not called...

I would really appreciate all your pointers. Thanks.

Your CustomJDBCAppender class doesn't seem to have a "package" declaration. Add the following package declaration to that class:

Sorry..I forgot to include that when I copied the definition of my class but my class is package accordingly.

But still the overriden execute method was not executed accordingly. Maybe I am missing something that I need to place in the code, Thanks.
I agree. Here's the link:
