Subject RE: Can groups of classes be assigned independent appenders?
Date Wed, 06 Nov 2002 23:02:21 GMT
The reason the order of the tags is important is that the XML configuration file is validated
with the log4j.dtd.  In DTDs, you specify tags and whether they are required or not.  And,
as part of that specification (and validation), a tag order is enforced.

Here's the logger DTD snippet:

<!ELEMENT logger (level?,appender-ref*)>
<!ATTLIST logger
  name		ID	#REQUIRED
  additivity	(true|false) "true"  

The fact that level precedes appender-ref imposes that order within the XML.

Sorry folks, suffering from "too much info" here!

Subject: RE: Can groups of classes be assigned independent appenders?

Sorry about that.  I was just copy/pasting.  I should have been more 
careful making sure the name of the appender-ref matched the appender.  I 
Didn't test the actual deal that I put there.  It does seems odd, though, 
that order of the tags should matter, but I suppose that is the case for 
web.xml.  Whatever.  As long as it works :-)

Glad I could help.
