Subject Logging with Struts and Tomcat
Date Tue, 01 Jul 2003 13:47:56 GMT

I use Struts 1.1 and Tomcat 4.1.24 and i cannot use correctly the 
logging functionnality of Struts. More exactly i don't know which 
settings i must set and in which file.

It is said in the doc that Struts use the logging facilities of the 
underlying logging implementation :
  * <li><strong>debug</strong> - TThe debugging detail level that 
controls how much
  *     information is logged for this servlet. Accepts values 0 (off) 
and from
  *     1 (least serious) through 6 (most serious). [0]
  *     <em>DEPRECATED - Configure the logging detail level in your
  *     underlying logging implementation.</em></li>

  So i want to set the log level of Struts to debug.

I think (it's what i have understand from the above sentences) what i 
must configure the Tomcat logger for doing this.

So i have configured the context.xml file where my application is 
declared on the webserver :

in the context file MyApp.xml :
<Context path="/myApp" docBase="d:/projets/myApp/dist/myApp.war"
   debug="6" reloadable="false">

   <Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.FileLogger"
     prefix="awrgfa_" timestamp="true" suffix=".log" verbosity="5"/>

But i see nothing i my logs after i have reloaded the application (and 
also restarted the tomcat).

(typically i want to see how the RequestProcessor function and i want to 
see the lines :
         if (log.isDebugEnabled()) {
             log.debug(" Populating bean properties from this request");
from, line 812-814.)

So i somebody know what i am doing wrong, please tell me what.

By the way, thanks to all the struts team for having giving us the 1.1 

Best regards,
Ludovic Maître
