Subject RE: log4j.properties - How to parse outpu to multiple files
Date Thu, 09 Oct 2003 12:57:00 GMT
FYI: I've also created a log4j.properties files that does the same thing as the log4j.xml file
listed in the attached email:

Eureka! I have a solution! I now have my logging messages split out into the 4 types that
I support: DEBUG, INFO, WARN & ERROR. My app-debug.log file contains everything, down
to my app-error.log file which only contains errors!

Why is it that these moments tend to occur after midnight...   :-)

Note: I switched from log4j.properties to log4j.xml in order to take advantage of filters,
which aren't supported in the properties file.

Here's my log4j.xml file, enjoy:

Subject: log4j.properties - How to parse outpu to multiple files


Greetings log4j list!

I'd like my logging output to be sent to multiple files at once. However, I only want ERRORs
in the app-error.log file, DEBUG in the app-debug.log file, etc. As a potential compromise,
I would be OK if I was able to at least reduce the types of log messages as the severity increased.

Can anyone assist with my log4.properties file? I've included a copy below, but note that
this config sends all the logging output to all files.

In addition, is there a way to avoid all the duplication in this config file, so I just have
to change the name of the output file in each case, and inherit all the RollingFileAppender
settings as I define each file?

Thanks!
