Subject Re: How to build simplesocketserver binary file?
Date Wed, 25 Mar 2009 16:48:40 GMT
Hi Renny and all,

I have followed your instructions and implemented a Java SimpleSocketServer
application that is running with log4j, I have done a test Java class that
initialize the logging and sends a couple of messages to the
SimpleSocketServer and works fine, all messages sent by the test class are
succesfully written in the same log file.

Then I have done the same with my log4cxx application, updating the
log4cxx.properties file to be like this:



log4j.appender.stdout.layout.ConversionPattern=%5p [%t] (%F:%L) - %m%n

# A1 is set to be a SocketAppender sending its output to the server running
on the remote host, port 4445

I have run my C++ application and what I get in my log file are just the
following messages:

2009-03-25 17:14:33,914 INFO  NRTSocketServer - NRTSocketServer :: Connected
to client at /
2009-03-25 17:14:33,969 INFO  NRTSocketServer - NRTSocketServer :: Starting
new socket node.

And after this no debug or info message is logged, just when my C++
application has finished I get the following message:

2009-03-25 17:16:25,290 ERROR org.apache.log4j.net.SocketNode - Could not
open ObjectInputStream to Socket[addr=/,port=36965,localport=4445]
        at java.io.ObjectInputStream.<init>(ObjectInputStream.java:277)
        at org.apache.log4j.net.SocketNode.<init>(SocketNode.java:55)
        at NRTSocketServer.main(NRTSocketServer.java:46)

So from logging messages from Java application using log4j to Java
ServerSocket works fine, but from C++ application using log4cxx 0.10 does
not work...

Could be the problem the type of Appender I am using? Maybe I should use
something like XMLSocketAppender or so?

Thanks in advance,
