Which hardly anybody addresses - which is how to use it in a cluster. What's the point in explaining how to do it on a single server.


I guess the main reason nobody tells how to do it is because log4j is an infant - it has no cluster support. Far better to stuff log4j away until it becomes mature, and use WEbLogic's superior logging.

    Hello,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    The articles main idea was to understand classloading issues and not act as a manual for all the issues involved in J2EE packaging and deployment.

    I agree that log4j in a cluster is an issue. However, it can be addressed by using either SocketAppender or JMX.

    I disagree when you say that log4j is not mature. There needs to be more to substantiate that claim than lack of genuine cluster support.
