log4j Websphere

log4j Websphere

log4j Websphere

I can run a java application without a server using eclipse ide and log4j will send emails as setup in a log4j.properties file. When I try to run the application on a Server however the emails are not sent. I have googled this problem all day and can't seem to find a reason behind this. Thanks for any help.

RE: log4j Websphere

I don't understand. A Java application (J2SE) has a main method and is executed standalone. When you talk about a server, is it an application server or a bigger machine? What errors are you getting?


RE: log4j Websphere

In the RAD(Rational Application Development) ide run on eclipse I have a web application project. Yes, there are some classes that have a main method with log.error, log.debug, etc. I can run these java classes standalone in the IDE with out running them on a server and the emails get sent out...no problem...Once I run the entire project on a server(WebSphere Application Server) and also have log statements, the emails do not get sent out. I don't understand the differences...There are no errors being outputted to indicate a problem....Howver the difference in the console output is this...

standalone....(email gets sent to me)

RE: log4j Websphere

I get you have in your RAD a test application server like WebSphere Test Environment, JBoss or something like that.

I'd take look at the configuration files, specially the SMTP parameters and the log4j configuration.
