    Problems with LogFactory.getLog(String)

    Vlad Walker Newbie

      I faced with a problem using LogFactory.getLog for logging.
      I configure my log4j with DOMConfigurator.configureAndWatch(XMLFile) and then I create an instance of commons.logging.Log
      Log log = LogFactory.getLog(className);
      After that I try to log:
      log.info("I'm a log!");
      XMLFile configure log4j to write logs to file (see below).
      but the last command writes logs to the specified file and to CONSOLE. Why?

      and two more things:
      - I've included log4j.jar to the lib of my .ear project - with this I wanted all my project to use one log4j configuration.
      - This all is under JBoss AS. And I don't want to use xml file of jboss to configure log4j.

      This is my xml config file:

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <!DOCTYPE log4j:configuration >
      <log4j:configuration xmlns:log4j="http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/" debug="false">
       <appender name="fileappender" class="org.apache.log4j.DailyRollingFileAppender">
       <errorHandler class="org.jboss.logging.util.OnlyOnceErrorHandler"/>
       <param name="File" value="${jboss.server.home.dir}/log/project.log"/>
       <param name="Append" value="true"/>
       <param name="DatePattern" value="'.'yyyy-MM-dd"/>
       <layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">
       <param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d [%t] %-5p %c - %m%n"/>
       <category name="some.package">
       <priority value="DEBUG" />
       <appender-ref ref="fileappender" />

      Thank you!
