    log4j separate log files

    mprivat Newbie

      Hi all,

      I have two EAR files, each declaring their own log4j xml config. They have a different classloader namespace (using jboss-app.xml). They are both supposed to log to a different file, but everything is logged into the first webapp's file. I am assuming this is because log4j is actually loaded by the server (because it's in its classpath).

      The question is: Is there a way to separate these log files so that each webapp can log into its own file?

      Any help appreciated!

          Add two separate appenders to your log config, and config different categories for each appender.

            Detail:
            In a windows environment I bring up the JBoss server using run.bat and the lof are generated in .../default/log/boot.log and so on.
            I also execute another batch file run2.bat and it also generates boot.log but in the root directory (eg C:/log/boot.log). I assume the value of {jboss.server.home.dir} in the log4j.properties in run.jar is read as "".

            I added

            log4j.appender.FILE1=org.jboss.logging.appender.FileAppender
            log4j.appender.FILE1.File1=/log2/boot.log
            log4j.appender.FILE1.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
            log4j.appender.FILE1.layout.ConversionPattern=%d{ABSOLUTE} %-5p [%c{1}] %m%n
            log4j.appender.FILE1.Append=false

            in the log4j.properties.

            I also added appropriate tags in the log4j.xml.

            Question
            How do I set the value of {jboss.server.home.dir} again when I execute run2.bat ?

            When I execute run2.bat how do I make JBoss look for the value "log4j.appender.FILE1.File1" instead of log4j.appender.FILE.File.
            so that it puts the boot.log in the right directory.

            Thanks
