Hi guys.
I hope this is the right place to post a question about log4j. if not please redirect me to the appropriate thread.

So...what i want to do is to write a logging implementation that uses log4j to log to a database.
i use an the jdbc appender from

it all goes well when i use it to log from a single class, but when i try to instantiate another class that logs something in the database, that log doesn't end up in the database.

my code is:

in the database only the log that LogTest made arrives i.e logger.debug("debug")

is there a way to capture the logs of all the classes that i'm instantiating in my class?

i need this because i need to log messages that come from a third party tool to which's source code i do not have access.

Thank you very much,
Vlad Turian
