Hello. I set up my log4j:configuration file:

In my console and log file i receive next logged response from server. It looks like :

TRACE: [may-15 16:41:04,341] server.MessageTracing.sent - Sent response [<SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV=""><SOAP-ENV:Header/><SOAP-ENV:Body>;a long, long unformated string without any line breaks</SOAP-ENV:Body></SOAP-ENV:Envelope>] for request ......

The question is: how to add pretty format with line breaks between xml tags in logged soap response? Does log4j support this feature?

Maya, welcome to CodeRanch!

Log4j doesn't play a role here since the original message being logged (from some library) itself doesn't have the necessary formatting in that text. You'll have to check who is logging that message and probably change the code to format the message being logged, before passing that message to the logger.
