          check out : http://wiki.apache.org/logging-log4j/Log4jXmlFormat


          a log4j.xml like the following on the classpath will do it (from link above) :


          <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
          <!DOCTYPE log4j:configuration SYSTEM "log4j.dtd">
          <log4j:configuration xmlns:log4j="http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/">
            <appender name="stdout" class="org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender"> 
              <layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout"> 
                <!-- Pattern to output the caller's file name and line number -->
                <param name="ConversionPattern" value="%5p [%t] (%F:%L) - %m%n"/> 
              </layout> 
            </appender> 
            <appender name="R" class="org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender"> 
              <param name="file" value="example.log"/>
              <param name="MaxFileSize" value="100KB"/>
              <!-- Keep one backup file -->
              <param name="MaxBackupIndex" value="1"/>
              <layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout"> 
                <param name="ConversionPattern" value="%p %t %c - %m%n"/> 
              </layout> 
            </appender> 
          
            <logger name="com.mycompany.apackage.MyClass">
              <level value="info"/> 
            </logger>
          
            <root> 
              <priority value ="debug" /> 
              <appender-ref ref="stdout" /> 
              <appender-ref ref="R" /> 
            </root>
          </log4j:configuration>
