Subject Re[2]: Multiple Log4J instances in one VM
Date Tue, 03 Dec 2002 21:04:59 GMT
Hello sanjayrajsoni,

Logging with separate logger repositories (hierarchies) using a logger repository
selector is log4j's way of dealing with this.  It works quite nicely,
if you ask me.  It allows you to configure each individual logger
repository without treading on any other.  See Ceki's doc here:
http://qos.ch/containers/

There he describes logger repositories keyed on classloader which
works fantastically in servers like Tomcat-4.1.xx.  For other servers
such as Jboss which, apparently, uses a common classloader for the
whole server (am I right about that?), this method might not work
quite right.  However, you can create a custom logger repository
selector to key on anything you want.

It would be nice if Log4j could come up with a standard repository
selector that worked in a standard way in all environments.  That's
probably what people are looking for.
