Have found in log4j docs that:
"SimpleLayout and PatternLayout classes ignore Java Throwable errors and exceptions. HTMLLayout and XMLLayout handle them."

Is it possible somehow to make the Throwables and Exceptions seen in the Fatal debug level when working with PatternLayout?

thank you,

While there is no way to include the exception as part of the layout pattern for PatternLayout, if you include the throwable when you log the message (ie logger.fatal("a message", exception), then it will get printed in the log. I'm pretty sure of that. Try it. -Mark
