I have configured Log4j for my application and when i start the tomcat server i am able to see some log4j warnings like this:

log4j: WARN: No appenders could be found for logger (org.apache.commons.beanutils.Convertutils ).
log4j: WARN: Please initialize the log4j system properly.

Could anyone have idea about this problem.

I dont want this messages to be comming.

Is there any changes to be made. please help me.

That means that Log4J is not picking up its configuration file. How did you name the file and where did you put it?

Or it could mean that your log4j configuration file does not specify an appender for that class. (As the message specifically says.)

If you don't want to see that message then (a) make sure your configuration file is in the correct place, and (b) make sure it specifies an appender for that class.
I agree. Here's the link:
