I have just successfully gotten a log4j XML configuration to load.

Here is the configuration:

<log4j:configuration xmlns:log4j="http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/" debug="false">

<appender name="FILE" class="org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender">
<param name="File" value="c:\log\A3.log"/>
<param name="Append" value="true"/>
<param name="MaxFileSize" value="500KB"/>
<param name="MaxBackupIndex" value="1"/>
<param name="Threshold" value="DEBUG"/>
<layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">
<param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d{dd MMM yyyy HH:mm:ss} - [%C.%M] - %p - %m%n"/>
</layout>
</appender>

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

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

<param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d{ABSOLUTE} %-5p [%c{1}] %m%n"/>
</layout>
</appender>

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


<root>
<appender-ref ref="CONSOLE"/>
<appender-ref ref="FILE"/>
</root>

</log4j:configuration>


where com.enetrix.sis is a parent package to several other packages. Notice that I'm logging to both a category and the root logger.

I get no output neither console or file. It isn't my Java, I've used log4j for years. Any suggestions?

It looks like you've taken care of everything servlet specific in your last post
https://coderanch.com/t/365514/Servlets/java/initializing-log

So..
I'm going to move this to our Other Open Source Projects forum where Log4j is usually covered.

Can you post the code where you initialize the logger and also the piece of code where you are logging the messages?

Solved my problem. My log4j.xml wasn't named log4j.xml!
