Subject Specify logging options from command line in Solr 1.4?
Date Tue, 19 Jan 2010 00:06:00 GMT
Hi all,

Wondering if anyone can point me at a simple way to specify basic
logging options (log level, log file location) when starting the Solr
example jar from the command line.

As a bit of background, I maintain a Ruby library for Solr called
Sunspot that ships with a Solr installation for ease of use. Sunspot
includes a script for starting Solr with various options, including
logging options. With Solr 1.3, I was able to write out a file and then set the system property
java.util.logging.config.file via the command line; this no longer
seems to work with Solr 1.4.

I understand that Solr 1.4 has moved to SLF4J, but I haven't been able
to find a readily available answer to the above question in the SLF4J
or Solr logging documentation. To be honest, I've always found logging
in Java rather mystifying.

Any help much appreciated!
