A-sec Only appenders of "security" because the additivity flag in "security" is set to false. More often than not, users wish to customize not only the output destination but also the output format.

This is accomplished by associating a layout with an appender. The PatternLayout , part of the standard log4j distribution, lets the user specify the output format according to conversion patterns similar to the C language printf function. Bar - Located nearest gas station. The first field is the number of milliseconds elapsed since the start of the program.

The second field is the thread making the log request. The third field is the level of the log statement. The fourth field is the name of the logger associated with the log request. Just as importantly, log4j will render the content of the log message according to user specified criteria. For example, if you frequently need to log Oranges, an object type used in your current project, then you can register an OrangeRenderer that will be invoked whenever an orange needs to be logged.

Object rendering follows the class hierarchy. For example, assuming oranges are fruits, if you register a FruitRenderer, all fruits including oranges will be rendered by the FruitRenderer, unless of course you registered an orange specific OrangeRenderer.

Object renderers have to implement the ObjectRenderer interface. Configuration Inserting log requests into the application code requires a fair amount of planning and effort. Observation shows that approximately 4 percent of code is dedicated to logging. Consequently, even moderately sized applications will have thousands of logging statements embedded within their code.

Given their number, it becomes imperative to manage these log statements without the need to modify them manually. The log4j environment is fully configurable programmatically. However, it is far more flexible to configure log4j using configuration files. Let us give a taste of how this is done with the help of an imaginary application MyApp that uses log4j. Logger; import org. It then defines a static logger variable with the name MyApp which happens to be the fully qualified name of the class.

MyApp uses the Bar class defined in the package com. This method is hardwired to add to the root logger a ConsoleAppender. Note that by default, the root logger is assigned to Level. Bar - Did it again! The figure below depicts the object diagram of MyApp after just having called the BasicConfigurator. As a side note, let me mention that in log4j child loggers link only to their existing ancestors. In particular, the logger named com. Bar is linked directly to the root logger, thereby circumventing the unused com or com.

The MyApp class configures log4j by invoking BasicConfigurator. Other classes only need to import the org. Logger class, retrieve the loggers they wish to use, and log away. The previous example always outputs the same log information.

Fortunately, it is easy to modify MyApp so that the log output can be controlled at run-time. Here is a slightly modified version. Bar; import org. Here is a sample configuration file that results in identical output as the previous BasicConfigurator based example.

ConsoleAppender A1 uses PatternLayout. PatternLayout log4j. The following configuration file shows one possible way of achieving this. ConsoleAppender log4j. As the logger com. Bar does not have an assigned level, it inherits its level from com.

The log statement from the Bar. Here is another configuration file that uses multiple appenders. RollingFileAppender log4j. In addition, as the root logger has been allocated a second appender, output will also be directed to the example.

This file will be rolled over when it reaches KB. When roll-over occurs, the old version of example. Note that to obtain these different logging behaviors we did not need to recompile code. Default Initialization Procedure The log4j library does not make any assumptions about its environment. In particular, there are no default log4j appenders. Under certain well-defined circumstances however, the static inializer of the Logger class will attempt to automatically configure log4j.

The Java language guarantees that the static initializer of a class is called once and only once during the loading of a class into memory. It is important to remember that different classloaders may load distinct copies of the same class. These copies of the same class are considered as totally unrelated by the JVM. The default initialization is very useful in environments where the exact entry point to the application depends on the runtime environment.

For example, the same application can be used as a stand-alone application, as an applet, or as a servlet under the control of a web-server. The exact default initialization algorithm is defined as follows: Setting the log4j.

Set the resource string variable to the value of the log4j. The preferred way to specify the default initialization file is through the log4j. In case the system property log4j. Attempt to convert the resource variable to a URL. If the resource variable cannot be converted to a URL, for example due to a MalformedURLException, then search for the resource from the classpath by calling org. Note that the string "log4j. See Loader. String for the list of searched locations. If no URL could not be found, abort default initialization.

Otherwise, configure log4j from the URL. You can optionaly specify a custom configurator. The value of the log4j. The custom configurator you specify must implement the Configurator interface. Example Configurations Default Initialization under Tomcat The default log4j initialization is particularly useful in web-server environments.

Under Tomcat 3. Log4j will find the properties file and initialize itself. This is easy to do and it works. You can also choose to set the system property log4j. For Tomcat 3.

For Tomcat 4. The file will be read using the PropertyConfigurator. Each web-application will use a different default configuration file because each file is relative to a web-application. Since the file ends with a.

BarConfigurator tells log4j to use the file foobar. Due to the definition of the log4j. BarConfigurator custom configurator. Thus, the same configuration file will be used for all web-applications.

Different web-applications will load the log4j classes through their respective classloaderss. Thus, each image of the log4j environment will act independetly and without any mutual synchronization.

For example, FileAppenders defined exactly the same way in multiple web-application configurations will all attempt to write the same file. The results are likely to be less than satisfactory. You must make sure that log4j configurations of different web-applications do not use the same underlying system resource. Initialization servlet It is also possible to use a special servlet for log4j initialization. Here is an example, package com. PropertyConfigurator; import javax. HttpServlet; import javax.

HttpServletRequest; import javax. HttpServletResponse; import java.

This was in early After countless enhancements, several incarnations and much work that API has evolved to become log4j, a popular logging package for Java.
