Changing log4j log level in Console [message #653911] Fri, 11 February 2011 20:37 Go to next message

I am using Helios to develop Java and JavaEE projects. With my JavaEE projects I have associated an install of a JBoss server with my IDE.

I would like to use log4j and it's various log levels in my code but when running JBoss through the IDE and running my code on the IDE throught the app server I cannot get the console to output any log messages except INFO and higher.

If I fire up JBoss outside of Eclipse, and compile and build a .war file and then deploy it by hand, I get all of the debugging messages as I would expect.

I would like to be able to view them on the Console while developing as it would save a lot of time, but cannot see how to change the log level.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I had the same Problem and solved it this way:

You should find something like this in your %JBOSS_HOME%\server\default\conf\jboss-log4j.xml:

   <appender name="CONSOLE" class="org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender">
      <errorHandler class="org.jboss.logging.util.OnlyOnceErrorHandler"/>
      <param name="Target" value="System.out"/>
      <param name="Threshold" value="INFO"/>

      <layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">
         <!-- The default pattern: Date Priority [Category] Message\n-->
         <param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d{ABSOLUTE} %-5p [%c{1}] %m%n"/>
      </layout>
   </appender>


Change:
<param name="Threshold" value="INFO"/>

To :
<param name="Threshold" value="DEBUG"/>


and the debug Entries will show in Console (Eclipse and normal)

If this is too much you can add some Limit categories a bit below.
