When using log4j to asynchronously log messages to a local log file, will the order of the log messages be preserved? (i.e. earliest time stamp will always be first and latest will be last)

I expect that would depend on how you implemented it. Do you have a specific implementation of asynchronous logging you wanted to ask about?

Well, the documentation doesn't specify the answer to your question. There's mention of a "buffer" which to me sounds like an orderly queue of messages, but if that isn't enough then you could examine the source code.
