Subject RE: log4j stops logging at console
Date Wed, 18 May 2005 15:26:42 GMT
This problem was fixed in (I believe) jBoss 4.0.2.   Of course in that
same versions they screwed up other stuff... (i.e.: Hibernate would no
longer work if you had it in your application) so you may or may not
want to use that version anyway.  But they are aware of the issues and I
hope they will eventually fix all these problems.

Good luck.

JBoss, by current design, only provides for one logging context (ie
LoggerRepository).  On top of that, the JBoss log4j.xml also sets up a
special CONSOLE appender that maps the System.out and System.err
streams.

If you do any kind of configuration after JBoss starts up that affects
the
console appender OR affects loggers that have been defined in the
JBoss
log4j.xml file, then it will affect the output to the log files. 
Especially
Console, do not mess with Console.  Also, if your log4j code ever
calls
LoggerRepository.shutdown() during a redeploy, then logging will be
hosed as
well.

JBoss really needs to provide a better mechanism to allowing web apps
and
ejb's to do their own logging.

Log4j does provide some "layering" of configuration where you can set
up
your own loggers and appenders as long as they are not references by
the
first/base configuration file.  Or you can just add your logging stuff
to
the JBoss log4j.xml file directly.

You may also find the following link useful, but I don't know if anyone
has
gotten to work correctly in JBoss or not.  Seems to me that to be
completely
efficient, it would need to be supported pretty deep in the JBoss
log4j
initialization.
