    Loging in an Web ab (JSP) doesnt produce a log file

    Marc Reis Novice

      I have a JSP which uses a java class as the client to the EJB's. This is the same client that I use in none web apps to invoke the EJB's.
      For the "Fat" Client" the loging works, for the "Thin Client" it doesnt produce a "client.log" file.
      This is all packed up in an ear, which is made up of an har, and jar for the jar with the ejbs and ofcourse a "war" for the web app.
      I have a log4j.xml in the WEB-INF/classes folder. I do not have a log4j.jar in the WEB-INF/lib folder.
      I checked the http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=Logging, but didnt pull out any think that seems to help me here.

      Some snipits of the code.
      log4j.xml

      ### direct log messages to stdout ###
      log4j.appender.stdout=org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender
      log4j.appender.stdout.Target=System.out
      log4j.appender.stdout.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
      log4j.appender.stdout.layout.ConversionPattern=%d{ABSOLUTE} %5p %c{1}:%L - %m%n
      
      ### direct messages to file client.log ###
      log4j.appender.file=org.apache.log4j.FileAppender
      log4j.appender.file.File=client.log
      log4j.appender.file.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
      log4j.appender.file.layout.ConversionPattern=%d{ABSOLUTE} %5p %c{1}:%L - %m%n
      
      ### set log levels - for more verbose logging change 'info' to 'debug' ###
      log4j.rootLogger=warn, stdout, file
      ### Set the log level for de.mediacare.* that should be logged
      log4j.logger.de.somewhere=debug
      


      The class doing the loging call (shortend to what I thought is important)
      ...
      import org.jboss.logging.Logger;
      ...
      private Logger log;
      ...
      if(doLogging){
       log= (log==null) ?getLogging() :log;
       log.debug(details);
       }
      ...
      


      details is a String containing the info to be logged.
      I debuged this part and all looks nice.
      I'll be glad for any hints, tipps links :)
      Thanks ahead!

      Sincerely

      Marc
