Hello everybody, I'm having some troubles with my application. I managed to implement log4j with a DailyRollingFileAppender which saves an XML Document in a server (Tomcat).

At the first deployment, my application and it log ran pretty good. It creates the xml file in /usr/share/tomcat6/logs/mylog.xml
Then I test my application and all the loggers save the data in the document. But then, when my partner deleted the file from the server. I thought that launching and deploying the application again, the xml log document was supposed to be created again and start appending the loggers since that moment. But the document never appeared in the folder. Other applications are running on the server, so I couldn't try to restart it. I wonder to know if it's something that has to do with the server, with my log configuration or a bug.

Please, I'll be grateful if you can help me with this. Thank you in advance.

Please check the path properly..May be there is some problem in the path.
After checking the path,deploy the application again.

Thanks for your reply, I think I know what the problem is... but what I don't know is how to solve it .

I work in NetBeans 6.9 IDE. And the Web application is actually a WebService. And, of course, I've created the Web Service Client to use operations of my WebService.

When I compile, deploy and run my webservice and then I compile, deploy and run my Client... I noticed that the logfile.xml is created on the path I specified /usr/share/tomcat6/logs/logfile.xml

But then I delete the log file in /usr/share/tomcat6/logs/logfile.xml

When I run the client again, the file is not being created. But when I right click on the client and debug instead of run, the file is being created. Is it a bug or do I have to include some special configuration in my client?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Sorry i am not sure about this,

When I compile, deploy and run my webservice and then I compile, deploy and run my Client... I noticed that the logfile.xml is created on the path I specified /usr/share/tomcat6/logs/logfile.xml[/qoute]

As you have compiler deploy and run both of your webservice and client,So your logfile.xml is created

But then I delete the log file in /usr/share/tomcat6/logs/logfile.xml


here you have deleted your file

When I run the client again, the file is not being created.

here why not you try to run the webservice again.


But when I right click on the client and debug instead of run, the file is being created. Is it a bug or do I have to include some special configuration in my client

When you say debug,you need to switch from normal to debug mode,so webservice will automatically get restarted.

So i will say why not you try to restart the webservice again and then run your client.

I hope this will be helpful

Yeah you're right, it works fine when I follow the steps you menctioned. Thank you very much for this information. I thought the log file was supposed to be created again when the webservice is invoked. Thanks!
