Subject Logging with ActiveMQ and Log4j
Date Mon, 28 Mar 2011 13:27:02 GMT
Hello.

I am currently developing a java project that is using ActiveMQ. I want to
capture the output from the ActiveMQ classes (e.g. the connector starting,
connections made and lost, messages sent and received) for logging purposes.
I am using Log4J as my logging tool in the application. 

I can not seem to find a way to capture the output and log it to file.
Adding log4j.properties to my project allows me to create a log file, but no
output is sent to the file.

This is my current log4j.properties file:

log4j.rootLogger=info, debug, logfile

# Or for more fine grained debug logging uncomment one of these
log4j.logger.org.apache.activemq=ALL
log4j.logger.org.apache.camel=ALL

# File appender
log4j.appender.logfile=org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender
log4j.appender.logfile.file="My_directory"/logs/activemq.log
log4j.appender.logfile.maxFileSize=1024KB
log4j.appender.logfile.maxBackupIndex=5
log4j.appender.logfile.append=true
log4j.appender.logfile.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.logfile.layout.ConversionPattern=%d | %-5p | %m | %c | %t%n

Using this example, a log file is created (the activemq.log file), but
nothing gets written to it.

I am also using a Log4j Logger instance in my code for general logging,
which works fine.

Is there anything I need to do in code to "activate" the logging so it can
be written out to file? Are there any changes that I need to make to the
log4j.properties file?

I am using activemq v. 5.4.2 and log4j 1.2.16 and my project is in NetBeans.

Any help would be appreciated.

Oli
