Chainsaw v2 is new, but it will still work with log4j 1.2.x.  I see  
your application uses lf5 Appender, which is no longer supported.

Instead, what you would do is expose a SocketHubAppender in your  
application, and have Chainsaw v2 connect to it via a matching  

Try installing Chainsaw by clicking on the Webstart Me Now button.   
If you have Java 1.4 installed on your machine it should launch Java  
and auto-install Chainsaw. If this does not work then your local  
machine does not have a registered handler for the JNLP mime-type (an  
indication that you don't have something installed right.)

You can try downloading the Unix/DOS standalone distribution of  
Chainsaw, unpacking and running chainsaw.sh(or .bat, whatever your  
local OS is ).
