Subject [SOLVED] cxf logging and log4j
Date Wed, 18 Jun 2014 14:34:54 GMT
I solved my own problem, but maybe the solution would be helpful to others:
 the issue was the file naming of the configuration file within META-INF in
the classpath.  I had it spelled as 'logger' but it was expecting 'Logger'.
 As usual, capitalization is key!
