I have properly configured my web application logs(log4j) to root to application log file. it has been bundled as a jar .I have no issues using this jar to log the message.But in some application the log messages are rooted to systemout prefixingStandaloneLogger (ex) if my log messges id log.debug("log message") it is apprearing as StandaloneLogger DEBUG log message .I suspect this issue is occuring where the webservices(axis.jar) related jars are used .Could any have any idea what could be the reason for this . I have even modified the axis log4j property file to set to FATAL. I even set addivity of my logger to false.but still i am facing this issue. Could any pne help me?
