Given that log4j could not find it's configuration file I'm guessing it's a problem with the current working directory when eclipse starts cassandra.

Can you start cassandra manually from where you have the source code? 

I do not use eclipse so may not be much more help.

That is the error msg.

Can you provide the full log messages so we can see where they are logged from and if there are any other messages as well.

It's probably a problem finding the config file or an invalid config file.

I use VM argument to specify the configuration file 
-Dstorage-config=/Users/zlzhao/Documents/eclipse/MaaSWorkspace/cassandra-0.7r2/test/conf/ -Dcassandra-foreground  -ea -Xmx1G
By the way, I can run the 0.66 using by following the wikipage. Do we need more configuration in order to run 0.7?

Cheers,

I have seen this error in 0.6.x when I was missing the cash directory configuration.
Maybe you are missing something in your configuration.

I've seen that before when cassandra.yaml file cannot be found or is corrupted. It may be that eclipse is not starting cassandra with the current working directory set as you think it is. Sorry, cannot help much with eclipse. 

There are a couple of places where that message can be logged. One is from the AbstractCassandraDaemon and the other is from the DatabaseDescriptor. Where is your's coming from?
