Under conf in 6.0.1 my log4j configuration file is called log4j.xml, under the new version the file name is jboss-log4j.xml. Is there any preference as to which file name should be used to configure the log4j service under 4.2.3? I assume that they should not both be in my new installation. Is that correct?
I couldn't find any clarification of this on the Jboss Website.
In 4.2.3, only the jboss-log4j.xml file will be used - log4j.xml, if it appears, will be ignored.
By the way, the file used to initialize log4j can be declared in jboss-service.xml - edit these lines:
<mbean code="org.jboss.logging.Log4jService" ...> <attribute name="ConfigurationURL">resource:jboss-log4j.xml</attribute> . . . </mbean>
