I am planning to have two separate log files for different packages - one for app and other for daos.

I am using following log4j.xml



I am using following log4j.properties file




And in my class in ex.com.app package I am using
private static Logger log = Logger.getLogger(LogonAction.class);

And in my class in ex.com.dao package I am using
private static Logger log = Logger.getLogger(LogonDAOImpl.class);

I am deploying the application on tomcat 6.x and I made sure that I have log4j.dtd, log4j.xml & log4j.prop file in the classpath WEB-Inf/classes/

It is creating the log files in the location I specified but it is never writing into these files.

Am I missing something or are there any configuration that are specific to tomcat? please help!!

thanks in advance...

I tried a sample java proj in eclipse sing same code, and it worked fine.

So I am guessing it has to do something with the tomcat configuration.

Did anyone successfully used log4j on tomcat server? please help!!!

You don't need to have both log4j.properties and log4j.xml, you should just stick with one (log4.xml being preferred).
