How can I log messages in Application Server log (e.g., log message in SystemOut.log in WebSphere App Server) using Logging classes from Sun?

I am using code below:

import java.util.logging.*;

private static ConsoleHandler c1 = new ConsoleHandler();
logger.addHandler(c1);
logger.log(Level.WARNING, "Exception thrown while connecting to LDAP.", e);

ConsoleHandler only logs message in console, not in application log.

What do I need to do to log message in log file of app server?

A few thoughts...

- I was under the impression anything that went to the console also goes to one of the log files such as System.out or System.err. I believe there was a bug in a 6.0 version of WAS where log files and console messages became out of sync, so I'd check your patch version. WAS6 requires a lot of patches.

- Use Log4J. It's better and more configurable, although this has nthing to do with your question.

- I believe there's multiple settings in the admin console that can control logging features. Search the admin console for a sub-group "Logging", I don't recall that exact name but it should be part of a server instance.
