Which log4j configuration are you using?

Posted in IT StuffTagged ,

Sometimes log4j is not working properly and you need to verify where it is actually writing the log entries. This can be easily verified turning on the log4j.debug: -Dlog4j.debug-Dlog4j.debug It will print to System.out lots of helpful information about which file it used to initialize itself, which loggers / appenders got configured and how etc.
