Hello,

i copied a project with eclipse where LOG4J is used

the original project OP has a config file in .\settings\configLOG4J.properties as my new project NP has

the OP inititializes LOG4J ( if i understand it right) like that:




if i do similar:



i get the following WARN:

log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.apache.mina.core.filterchain.IoFilterEvent).
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.
log4j:WARN See http://logging.apache.org/log4j/1.2/faq.html#noconfig for more info.

the buildpath and settingsfiolders are identical, what else i am missing ?

regards
dirk

From the link posted in the error message:

log4j uses Thread.getContextClassLoader().getResource() to locate the default configuration files and does not directly check the file system.


That means just copying the file to a relatively similar place doesn't solve the problem, log4j doesn't check the file system. Instead it uses ClassLoaders to find the file - and that means setting up your classpath. Make sure the proper location is set up in your project's classpath.

because other subsystems also using propertiefiles i was pretty sure that this is not the point

in eclipse ( i am starting the apps in eclipse) i cant find a configuration for classpath, i have only buildpath, is this the one you mean ?
i compared the two projects and it seems to be equal, except that one warns and one not

Right click on project in Package explorer or Navigator > Run As > Run Configurations > Classpath

is the log4j properties file present on your classpath? I think adding it to the classpath should fix it.

What do you mean by
