Subject Re: log4j seems not read by ant
Date Wed, 23 Feb 2011 09:22:01 GMT
Ok. I know what goes wrong now.

For debug log4j with ant, it is jvmarg instead of arg needed to be
added within java tag.

    <java ...>
        <jvmarg value="-Dlog4j.debug" />
    </java>

log4j.properties is not read because there is another project which
also uses log4j logging system that I was not aware of. And that
classpath property is preceded before my log4j.properties.

Wrong classpath
   <path id="spider.classpath">
        <fileset dir="${another.project.home}/" includes="**/*.jar"/>
<!-- this includes jars which contains other log4j.properties -->
	<pathelement location="${myporject.conf}"/> <!-- my log4j.properties
here then is ignored -->
    </path>

Worked version
   <path id="spider.classpath">
	<pathelement location="${myproject.conf}"/> <!-- make my project's
log4j.properties the first one in classpath -->
         ....
    </path>

Now everything works well.

Thanks.
