The current log4cxx serialized LoggingEvent is not binary compatible  
with log4j, this is reported as

Chainsaw can be used with the XMLSocketAppender.

It would be preferable to make log4cxx's (and log4net) serialized form  
to be compatible with log4j.  It has been a long desired enhancement,  
but pretty far done on my to-do list.  If anyone wants to analyze  
log4j's serialized form, it would be a great help, but actual  
implementation would probably be best deferred until the Unicode and  
Location related changes are complete.
