Subject ALWAYS: Error encountered on logger init:[java.lang.NullPointerException]
Date Fri, 18 Jul 2008 16:42:00 GMT
No matter what I have in my log4j.properties, I get the following right
after log4j starts:

Error encountered on logger init:[java.lang.NullPointerException]

This is my current log4j.properties file, although I've tried many others:

log4j.rootLogger=FATAL, CONSOLE
log4j.appender.CONSOLE=org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender
log4j.appender.CONSOLE.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.CONSOLE.layout.ConversionPattern=%-4r [%t] %-5p %c %x - %m%n

I dont know how to get any useful information about this failure, and I
cannot discern that I am doing anything wrong.  How can I get information
from log4j about its failure, and how can I debug this issue with log4j?
Thus far I've found no way to get any information on this failure, and it
seems like just having a log4j.properties, whether it has contents or no,
causes this problem.

Here's the output leading to this error:

[log.dir.config] not set - looking in [/home/rektide/foo/conf] for logging
configuration
[/home/rektide/foo/conf/log4j.properties] is a valid file location
[/home/rektide/foo/conf/log4j.properties] is a readable file location
Error encountered on logger init:[java.lang.NullPointerException]
