I think that you have to set the log4j.properties somewhere.

use this code from my project


If you want to create log files using log4j, there is a certain programming structure you have to follow like this


+++++++++++++++++
import java.io.File;

import org.apache.log4j.Level;
import org.apache.log4j.Logger;
import org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout;
import org.apache.log4j.Priority;
import org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender;

private Logger standardLogger;
String loggerName = "MyProjectLogger";
File standardlogPath = new File(standardLogFilePath);
//standardLogFilePath  is directory where you want the log files to be stored. so   standardLogFilePath=c:/logfiles
if (!standardlogPath.exists()) {
standardlogPath.mkdirs();   //if directory doesnt exist , create one
}

PatternLayout layout =
new PatternLayout(PatternLayout.TTCC_CONVERSION_PATTERN);
layout = new PatternLayout("%d - %p - %m%n");
//PatternLayout  is a predefined class provided by log4j

RollingFileAppender fileAppender1 = new RollingFileAppender();
//RollingFileAppender is a predefined class provided by log4j package
fileAppender1 = new RollingFileAppender(layout, standardLogFilePath + standardLogFileName,
true);


//standardLogLevel is the log level which you have to set based on your project requirments.It can be debug,info,warn,error or fatal
//check for standardLogLevel conditions and set threshhold(Priority ) accordingly

if (standardLogLevel.equals("DEBUG")) {
fileAppender1.setThreshold(Priority.DEBUG);
} else if (standardLogLevel.equals("INFO")) {
fileAppender1.setThreshold(Priority.INFO);
} else if (standardLogLevel.equals("WARN")) {
fileAppender1.setThreshold(Priority.WARN);
} else if (standardLogLevel.equals("ERROR")) {
fileAppender1.setThreshold(Priority.ERROR);
} else if (standardLogLevel.equals("FATAL")) {
fileAppender1.setThreshold(Priority.FATAL);
}

standardLogger = Logger.getLogger(loggerName);
standardLogger.addAppender(fileAppender1);
//you have to use above line, that is why you are getting error No appenders found!
            }

>>I think that you have to set the log4j.properties somewhere.
I have already set Log4J.properties under WEB-INF/classes folder as I am using Tomcat...
It is not helping..

I want to use Log4J utility thru properties file...
Is it really neccsary to write a class for intializing logger....as tomcat automatically intiliazes Log4J.properties when kept under WEB-INF/classes folder

Pls suggest

you dont have to.

Just make sure you have everything setup properly in the log4j.properties file. make sure you have these in it

log4j.rootLogger=info, A
log4j.appender.A=org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender
log4j.appender.A.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.A.layout.ConversionPattern=%-4r [%t] %-5p %c %x - %m%n
