Subject jdk 1.4 logging and log formatter class not being found
Date Fri, 29 Aug 2003 11:18:12 GMT
This is a repost from last week, which got no answers. I've tried to 
give more & better info here.

I just upgraded from 4.1.24 to 4.1.27 and found that java now
can't find my formatter class which I need for JDK 1.4 logging.

The configuration in the file is picked up fine, I 
established since there is an xml formatter classes in JDK 1.4 which I 
have tested out and it works fine.

So the problem is definitely that 4.1.27 is now mislaying the reference 
to my formatter class, presumably when it constructs the class path for 

I have the formatter class in tomcat's common/classes directory.
Switching back to 4.1.24, it still works.

I've tried placing my class in server/classes, in shared/classes and
also in WEB-INF/classes for a particular webapp, with no joy. Does
anybody have any idea what I can do?


ps in both 4.1.24 and 27 I am using the LE binaries. I have also tried
it with the old commons-logging.jar and with the latest jar - not that
it should affect it, but I've been trying everything in desperation.

struts 1.1 + tomcat 4.1.27 + java 1.4.2
