LogExample.java


import org.apache.log4j.Logger;

public class LogExample {

  public LogExample() {
  }
  static Logger log = Logger.getLogger(LogExample.class);

  public static void main(String argsp[]) {

  log.debug("Here is some DEBUG");
  log.info("Here is some INFO");
  log.warn("Here is some WARN");
  log.error("Here is some ERROR");
  log.fatal("Here is some FATAL");
  }
}

log4j.properties


log4j.rootLogger=debug, stdout
log4j.appender.stdout=org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender
log4j.appender.stdout.Target=System.out

log4j.appender.stdout.layout.ConversionPattern=[%5p%d{mm:ss
(

Thank you

This is just the simple example I was looking for. I placed the log4j.properties in the root source folder of Eclipse and this example ran fine! Thanks.
