Weblogic, Struts and Log4j. Log4J errors

Hi Experts.
I have some problems deploying my application on Weblogic 6.1 sp2.
I have overwritten the struts actionServlet to initialize Log4J (1.2RC1) (propertyConfigurator) and during the startup it says:  ClassNotFound org/apache/log4j/Category

all libraries (struts.jar, classes12.jar, log4j1.2rc1.jar) are in the War file in (WEB_INF/lib/)
all property files are located next to the class file and are loaded with class.getResourceAsStream.

The whole application runs fine with JUnit test.

The Log4J initialisation is the same like the init for all JUnit tests.

Any idea?

cheers

Did you try (1) using 1.1.3 of Log4J, or (2) replacing your "Category" class with the "Logger" class?

I think's it's your version of log4j - I use jakarta-log4j-1.1.3 & struts w/o any issues (on Tomcat 4).

http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/docs/download.html

One important change is the replacement of the Category class with Logger class and the Priority class with the Level class in order to facilitate migrating from the JDK 1.4 logging API to log4j.

P.S.  I do my initialization in a StartupServlet and don't override the ActionServlet, seems simpler...

But did you add the log4j library into the WAR file (Web-inf/lib) or did you add the library to the classpath from the weblogic server? I have no permission to change the classpath on the bea server...

I'm using Tomcat 4.0.1, and I justed added it to WEB-INF/lib.  I know that this has some issues on some appservers, but weblogic is usually pretty good (compliant) on this kind of stuff.

To mraible:
I use Logger not Category
and I will try the 1.1.3 Log4J
