Well, when log4j is loading a properties configfile or an XML configfile, it does simply map the "instructions"
( be they XML or properties) to corresponding calls of setters
The best way to learn this is to use examples in the beginning:Here is a simple example of configuration with the propertiesFor XML, here is a simple example> Or the DTD for the XML properties?
There is a dtd inside the distributed Jar file>Also, where does log4j want the configuration file to live?
Basically, the idea is: You define it...
You need to use the following command in the beginning of your application in order to load the configuration file:DOMConfigurator.configureAndWatch("filename");
- That's for XML configuration file... Use BasicConfigurator
You can also manually load the property file in the "java" shell command execution.
