    How to write a custom appender in JBoss 6.0.GA?

    Kuntal Mondal Newbie

      Hello,


      All I need to create a seperate log file for my application-logging.

      I have modified "{JBOSS}\server\default\deploy\jboss-logging.xml" file and added following declaration for my custom appender.

       

          <log4j-appender name="MYAPP_FILE_APPENDER" class="org.apache.log4j.FileAppender">

               <param name="File" value="${jboss.server.home.dir}/log/myapp.log" />

               <param name="Append" value="true" />

       

               <layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">

                    <param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d{dd MMM yyy HH:mm:ss}, %-6p %C:%M:%L %m %n" />

               </layout>

          </log4j-appender>

       

          <logger category="com.im.logger">

              <priority value="INFO" />

              <appender-ref ref="MYAPP_FILE_APPENDER" />

          </logger>

       

      Jboss throws error during startup. Basically it does not like "<param name="File" ...." under "<log4j-appender...".

      Then how should I specify the log file location?

      Is this feature supported in JBoss 6.0.Final ????

      or I have to use a log4j.properties in my application-classpath ??????

      This is a very common requirement and used to work in earlier release of JBoss.
