    log4j logging not working as expected! What am I doing wrong

    Anne Forumer Newbie

      jBoss 4.0.4

      I am trying to print a debug level message in a category which I think is set up with "DEBUG". Yet I am not seeing the message! I'd appreciate it if somebody could point out what I am doing wrong. Here are excerpts of the log4j.xml:

       <appender name="FILE" class="org.jboss.logging.appender.DailyRollingFileAppender">
       <errorHandler class="org.jboss.logging.util.OnlyOnceErrorHandler"/>
       <param name="File" value="${jboss.server.home.dir}/log/server.log"/>
       <param name="Append" value="false"/>
      
       <!-- Rollover at midnight each day -->
       <param name="DatePattern" value="'.'yyyy-MM-dd"/>
      
       <!-- Rollover at the top of each hour
       <param name="DatePattern" value="'.'yyyy-MM-dd-HH"/>
       -->
      
       <layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">
       <!-- The default pattern: Date Priority [Category] Message\n -->
       <param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d %-5p [%c] %m%n"/>
      
       <!-- The full pattern: Date MS Priority [Category] (Thread:NDC) Message\n
       <param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d %-5r %-5p [%c] (%t:%x) %m%n"/>
       -->
       </layout>
       </appender>
      
       <root>
       <priority value="info"/>
       <appender-ref ref="CONSOLE" />
      
       <appender-ref ref="FILE"/>
       </root>
      
       <category name="com.comp.bg.notification">
       <priority value="DEBUG" />
       <appender-ref ref="JDBC"/>
       <appender-ref ref="FILE"/>
       </category>
      
      


      A class, com.comp.bg.notification.GulSession gets a logger:

       private static Logger log = Logger.getLogger(GulSession.class);
      


      But the following is not printing a DEBUG statement in server.log!

      
      log.debug("print this");
