    How to create a custom/application logging file in jboss-as-7.1.1.Final?

    Anand Paul Newbie

      Hi All,

       

      I am very new to jBoss world and so trying to figure out on how to configure the application specific logging in jBoss 7.1.1. After the logging is not working and after googling, I found out that we need to create a separate class loading for the application so that jBoss will not disturb the application specific logging and then I made the following changes. Even then, the logging is not working. I followed the suggestions provided by jaikiran.jai_forums2005.yahoo.co.in

       

      Added a new file called jboss-web.xml in META-INF folder in the path WebContent\META-INF\jboss-web.xml. Entry of the file is:

       

      <jboss-web>
        <class-loading java2ClassLoadingCompliance="false">
        <loader-repository>
        com.actions:loader=MyClassLoader
        <loader-repository-config>
        java2ParentDelegation=false
        </loader-repository-config>
        </loader-repository>
        </class-loading>
      </jboss-web> 
      

       

      Log4j.properties in the path \src\log4j.properties

       

      # Set root logger level to WARN and append to stdout
      log4j.rootLogger=DEBUG, file
      log4j.appender.file.File=C:\\Temp\\logigng.log
      log4j.appender.file.MaxFileSize=10MB
      log4j.appender.file.MaxBackupIndex=10
      log4j.appender.file.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
      
      
      # Direct log messages to a log file
      log4j.appender.file=org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender
      
      
      # Pattern to output the caller's file name and line number.
      log4j.appender.file.layout.ConversionPattern=%d %5p (%c:%L) - %m%n
      
      
      # Print only messages of level ERROR or above in the package noModule.
      log4j.logger.noModule=DEBUG
      
      
      #log4j.logger.com.opensymphony.xwork2=DEBUG
      #log4j.logger.org.apache.struts2=DEBUG
      log4j.logger.com.actions=DEBUG
      

       

      I made sure that the Log4j and jboss-web.xml files are in the classpath so that they are picked up during the application execution. FYI, the logging is working in a standalone file and so I confirm that the log4j properties are correct.

       

      Please let me know on how to fix this issue..

      Thanks in advance...

          With JBoss AS 7.x you'd need to do something like How To - JBoss AS 7.1.

            Hi James,

             

            Thanks for your reply.

             

            I created a file jboss-deployment-structure.xml and I get the following error while deployment. The XML file was giving me the validation error and then I corrected the URN version from 1.2 to 2.0. The validation error is gone, but end up with deployment error that unexpected element URN....

             

            Then I removed the xmlns and tested. It worked.  Thanks for your help!!!

             

            <jboss-deployment-structure xmlns="urn:jboss:deployment-structure:2.0">
                <deployment>
                    <!-- Exclusions allow you to prevent the server from automatically adding some dependencies -->
                    <exclusions>
                        <module name="org.apache.log4j" />
                    </exclusions>
                </deployment>
            </jboss-deployment-structure>
