Within my application I use log4j to see what's going on. I load my log4j settings from an xml file using the syntax below :-


I output debug data using methods like :

final Logger logger = Logger.getLogger(Utility.class);
ogger.debug("something or other etc");

The XML config looks like :-

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<!DOCTYPE log4j:configuration SYSTEM "log4j.dtd">

<log4j:configuration xmlns:log4j='http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/'>

<appender name="CONSOLE" class="org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender">
<param name="Threshold" value="DEBUG"/>
<layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">
<param name="ConversionPattern" value="%-5p [%t] %c - %m%n"/>

<level value="debug" />
<appender-ref ref="CONSOLE" />

When I run my application from eclipse I see that the output appears in a eclipse window called "Console".

My question is, when I run the program from the DOS command line why don't I see any output in the DOS window, is that not the console in this case?

The application is a gui/swing application.

Many thanks in advance,
