Problem with Log4J & Tomcat


I have a web application which is using :
1. Apache Tomcat 6
2. Hibernate 3.2 with Annotations.
3. Struts 1.2

When I try to start my tomcat (with my web app deployed), The following error/warning messages is being displayed.
Also tomcat hangs for around 5 minutes then.

I have updated my log4j version to 1.2.15, still the problem is not rectified.

Waiting for your suggestions.

you're missing the log4j configuration file
and its not the cause of your slow startup
It's not an error anyway, it's a warning. Log4J will still work, it just won't do any output redirection and layout you might have wanted.

Then, what might be the reason?
Please suggest me the solution.
Mick BarryJava DeveloperCommented:
you haven't provided sufficient details to determine cause
sandeep1984Author Commented:

Can you please specify What are the details required??
You need to configure the log4j config file (which *is* present btw) so that key components (Hibarnate,Struts) are given appenders. This might well reveal the cause of your slow startup. Here's an example of Hibernate log4j config:

check your other tomcat logs (eg. localhost log)

In my struts-config.xml
I have given
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE struts-config PUBLIC "-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 1.2//EN"

Id I remove DOCTYPE, tomcat works fine.
Is DOCTYPE necessary? Why it is used?
I would imagine the cause is different. The DOCTYPE should be there. It's there in all mine and i have no problems
sandeep1984Author Commented:
The problem is solved.
Thanks to all.

I have downloaded struts-config_1_2.dtd and kept it in web-inf.

Changed DOCTYPE to :

<!DOCTYPE struts-config PUBLIC
                  "-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 1.2//EN"

Thanks Again.
