Subject Custom LoggerFactory
Date Mon, 08 Dec 2008 10:18:25 GMT
Hi all,

I'm probably being blind but I have a customer Logger implementation (MyLogger extends Logger)
and a custom LoggerFactory (MyLoggerFactory implements LoggerFactory).  

Properties props = new Properties();
props.put(PropertyConfigurator.LOGGER_FACTORY_KEY, "com.xxx.MyLoggerFactory");
props.put("log4j.rootLogger", "OFF");
props.put("log4j.appender.A1", "org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender");
props.put("log4j.appender.A1.layout", "org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout");
props.put("log4j.appender.A1.layout.ConversionPattern", "%5p [%t] %c - %m%n");
props.put("log4j.logger.com.xxxx.MyClass, "DEBUG, A1");
Logger log = Logger.getLogger(MyClass.class);

If I set 

props.put("log4j.logger.com.xxxx.MyClass, "DEBUG, A1"); 

with the full class name for MyClass, the log variable is an instance of MyLogger.  However,
if I make the configuration more generic (e.g. package wide)  with 

props.put("log4j.logger.com.xxxx, "DEBUG, A1");

I get an instance of the standard log4j Logger class. 

I've run through the log4j code in the debugger and I can see what it's doing, i.e. it's creating
a MyLogger for com.xxxx and adding it to the hashtable but then when I call Logger.getLogger(MyClass.class)
it uses the default factory and returns a standard Logger.

Am I missing something here?  I want all sub-packages / classes of com.xxxx to return a MyLogger

Using log4j version 1.2.12.

Many thanks,
