apache -> httpclient: how to send user login to web page which required usr and psswd?

Dear experts,

I'm using log4j and httpclient from jakata in my code for login to website by automatically, but i got error message as below
 "log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.apache.commons.httpclient.params.DefaultHttpParams)."

*My idea is want to write an application which use to log into web site eg. mail.yahoo.com or whatever and read contents or download ....

here is my code:
-------------------------

import java.io.IOException;
import org.apache.commons.httpclient.*;
import org.apache.commons.httpclient.methods.*;
import org.apache.commons.httpclient.params.*;
import org.apache.log4j.*;
....
.......

       public HttpClient client;
        public static Logger logger = Logger.getLogger("weblogin.class");

    //initial for client establishment
    public weblogin() {
        try {
            initCln();

        } catch (Exception e) {
            logger.error("Could not resolve to the web address !!!" +
                               e.toString());
        }
    }


    private void initCln() {
        ProxyClient pxy = new ProxyClient();
        HostConfiguration config = pxy.getHostConfiguration();

        System.out.println("----> " + config);

        client = new HttpClient();
        client.getParams().setParameter("http.useragent", "MSIE 6.0");
        client.setHostConfiguration(config);
        client.getParams().setParameter(HttpMethodParams.RETRY_HANDLER,
                                        new DefaultHttpMethodRetryHandler(0, false));
    }

....
..... and i hv another class for sending login command to url

Okay,

Firstly, you can create a simple log4j.properties as below.

----log4j.properties-----
log4j.rootLogger=INFO, ROOT

log4j.appender.ROOT.Threshold=INFO

log4j.appender.ROOT=org.apache.log4j.DailyRollingFileAppender
log4j.appender.ROOT.File=${user.dir}/log/BigTime.log
log4j.appender.ROOT.DatePattern='.'yyyy-MM-dd
log4j.appender.ROOT.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.ROOT.layout.ConversionPattern=%d %-5p [%t] (%F:%L) - %m%n
---------

Put it in your root path of your application and see whether it works or not.

It seems that the problem is on log4j. Have you created the log4j.properties in your classpath?

Yep,

Pointing the library (jar) file is only to make the library available to your application. However, you need to manually create the log4j.properties in your application.

Is this web application or desktop application?

You can change the name of the log file to any name that you want.

log4j.appender.ROOT.File=${user.dir}/log/[Any Name Here].log
