In my webap involving tomcat, strut, hibernate. Every is working fine.  I have also setup log4j but unable to print debug output to the console. Please see snippets:
public class CreateCustomerAction extends AbstractAction {
....................
    private static Log log = LogFactory.getLog(CreateCustomerAction.class );
.....................
 if ( log.isDebugEnabled() ){
        	log.debug("just read firstName:"+ fn
        			+", lastName: " + ln 
        			+", emailAddress: "+ ad
        			+", custumerID: " + custId);
        }
 
 
 
log4j.properties:
=================
log4j.rootLogger=WARN, stdout
log4j.appender.stdout=org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender
log4j.appender.stdout.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.stdout.layout.ConversionPattern=[%5p] %d{mm:ss}
(%F:%M:%L)%n%m%n%n
 
log4j.logger.org.apache.struts=DEBUG
org.hibernate.SQL=DEBUG
org.hibernate.type=DEBUG
org.hibernate.tool.hbm2ddl=DEBUG
org.hibernate.pretty=DEBUG
org.hibernate.cache=DEBUG
org.hibernate.transaction=DEBUG
org.hibernate.jdbc=DEBUG

you need to specify debug level for the package that class belongs to

you don't need
" if ( log.isDebugEnabled() ){"

and perhaps you could try log4j.rootLogger=DEBUG

are you sure the properties file is on the classpath ? try a system.out after your  if ( log.isDebugEnabled() )

After i inserted these lines in that class, i have the screen shot below: note some WARN printed there. So, yes WARN is showing there.

           if (logger.isWarnEnabled()){
             logger.warn("just read firstName:"+ fn
                         +", lastName: " + ln
                         +", emailAddress: "+ ad
                         +", custumerID: " + custId);
      }

Well,... i got this working by chance i think. Attached below is the log4j.properties version that works for me.

Note that i did not have to add: log4j.logger.action=DEBUG, stdout

However i think the below is crutial:
log4j.appender.stdout.Target=System.out


log4j.appender.stdout=org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender
log4j.appender.stdout.Target=System.out
log4j.appender.stdout.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.stdout.layout.ConversionPattern=%d{ABSOLUTE} %5p %c{1}:%L - %m%n
log4j.rootLogger=warn, stdout
 
log4j.logger.org.apache.struts=DEBUG
org.hibernate.SQL=DEBUG
org.hibernate.type=DEBUG
org.hibernate.tool.hbm2ddl=DEBUG
org.hibernate.pretty=DEBUG
org.hibernate.cache=DEBUG
org.hibernate.transaction=DEBUG
org.hibernate.jdbc=DEBUG
org.hibernate.hql.ast.AST=DEBUG
org.hibernate.secure=DEBUG
org.hibernate=DEBUG
