Hi,

I'm using JBoss 5.1 AS (on Mac 10.5.6, Java 1.6) and running a web application (WAR file). I have this log4j.xml file in my WEB-INF/classes directory:




But this statement (from the myco.galc.capitol.tours.CapitolToursController class) produces no output in any of my log files ...




What am I doing wrong in my log4j configuration or where else should it be adjusted? Thanks, - Dave

What is "LogFactory" and "Log". Those don't belong to log4j. Are you using some other logging framework atop log4j?

The imports for those are

import org.apache.commons.logging.Log;
import org.apache.commons.logging.LogFactory;

But as I said, info statements and above are getting written to the logs so I'm wondering why the debug statements are not even though the log4j configuration explicitly lists debug. - Dave

So you have Apache Commons logging set up to use log4j as its output? Perhaps it has some configuration you have to set up to control the logging level as well.
