Log4J needs to be deployed to the web server.

Thanks David,
But i am new to log4j and i don not know what do you mean by deploying log4j to the server
I am using tomcat, if you could give me more directions that would be great.

Thanks in advance

Add the log4j jar to your application lib path.

It depends on how your web app/Eclipse is set up. One way would be to put it in your WEB-INF/lib directory if you have one.

log4j.properties should be in the Classpath , precisly in classes folder.
Src is for source directory , it might be confusing to differentiate in IDE. So make sure you put log4j , inside bin where classes are there.
