    EJB Client log4j warnings

    Guillaume Bessez Newbie

      I developped my application with EJBs. Everything is OK, the deployment works fine etc...
      I then developped a client to test my application. It works OK but i get warnings at run time. My problem is that I want to display some information in the console from the client and it doesn't work. My warnings are linked to log4j.
      Any one can help me ?

      log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (myClient).
      log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.

      My client:
      import org.apache.log4j.Logger;
      private static Logger log = Logger.getLogger(myClient.class);
      public myClient(String mss) {
      try {
      log.info("client " + mss);

      My config:
      Eclipse 3.1
      JBoss 4.0.3

          1 - Do not cross post.

          2 - You need to read the log4j documentation and look at how to configure applications for logging.

              use in the class of client

              import org.apache.log4j.*;

              in code

              static Logger logger;
              in main

              logger = Logger.getRootLogger();
              logger.addAppender(new FileAppender(new HTMLLocator(),

              ensure all log related jars are available(use ant)

                I solved the problem of Log4j warnings with the following code.

                import java.rmi.RemoteException;
                import java.util.Properties;
                import javax.naming.*;
                import javax.ejb.*;
                import javax.rmi.PortableRemoteObject;
                import org.apache.log4j.*;

                public class Client
                private static final String JNDI_NAME = "st.hello";
                static Logger logger;
                public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception

                logger = Logger.getRootLogger();
                logger.addAppender(new FileAppender( new HTMLLayout(), "log.html",true));

                Properties h = new Properties();
                h.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContextFactory");
                h.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "localhost:1099");
                h.put(Context.URL_PKG_PREFIXES, "org.jboss.naming:org.jnp.interfaces");
                Context ctx = new InitialContext(h);

                HelloHome home = (HelloHome ) ctx.lookup(JNDI_NAME);

                Hello hello = home.create();



                It is writing the log into a HTML file called log.html.
