and first of all, thanks for your quick responses.
But I still can't get it to work !     :(
In c++:

    LoggerPtr fraLogger = Logger::getLogger("fraLogger");

In log4j.properties:

    log4j.rootLogger = DEBUG, ACSALogger
    log4j.appender.ACSALogger = org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender
    log4j.appender.ACSALogger.layout = org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
    log4j.appender.ACSALogger.layout.ConversionPattern=%-4r [%t] %-5p %c
    %x - %m%n
    log4j.appender.ACSALogger.File = ACSALogger.log

    log4j.fraLogger = ERROR, ACSALogger2
    log4j.appender.ACSALogger2 = org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender
    log4j.appender.ACSALogger2.layout = org.apache.log4j.SimpleLayout
    log4j.appender.ACSALogger2.File = TMP.log

The problem is that everything logged goes to ACSALogger.log and not to 
TMP.log receives data only if I tell rootlogger to use ACSALogger2 too 
as a logger. The first line becomes :
log4j.rootLogger = DEBUG, ACSALogger,  ACSALogger2.
The point is i'd like to have differents loggers for different parts of 
the software.
Any more advice from you log4cxx users ?
