Subject Re: struggling with getting hello world from log4j2 to chainsaw v2
Date Fri, 10 May 2013 18:02:28 GMT
Right, I followed you, I'm using it in my app, what I meant was when
Chainsaw starts it asks me if I want to open a log4j config file so I
select the one the app is using and click Ok.  I hadn't notice this before
because my window was too small, but at the status bar at the bottom it
tells me the result of that was {}.

Good call, I did have the jmdns line commented out in the classpath from
last night's debugging, so that's back in, and now zeroconf is much closer
to working.  The only remaining problem is that although the zeroconf tab
says Connected no tab has popped up.  Double clicking the row toggles it
between Connected ant Not Connected, but I can't see any of the messages
that should be streaming in.  Giving the receiver a level doesn't seem to
fix it either.  Any idea what the problem is?

Also it seems that one of the restarts has fixed the horizontal resizing
issue I'd been seeing.
