Java Language Properties-File to log to DB


Example

For this example to work you'll need a JDBC driver compatible to the system the database is running on. An opensource one that allows you to connect to DB2 databases on an IBM System i can be found here: JT400

Even though this example is DB2 specific, it works for almost every other system if you exchange the driver and adapt the JDBC URL.

# Root logger option
log4j.rootLogger= ERROR, DB

# Redirect log messages to a DB2
# Define the DB appender   
log4j.appender.DB=org.apache.log4j.jdbc.JDBCAppender

# Set JDBC URL (!!! adapt to your target system !!!)
log4j.appender.DB.URL=jdbc:as400://10.10.10.1:446/DATABASENAME;naming=system;errors=full;

# Set Database Driver (!!! adapt to your target system !!!)
log4j.appender.DB.driver=com.ibm.as400.access.AS400JDBCDriver

# Set database user name and password
log4j.appender.DB.user=USER
log4j.appender.DB.password=PASSWORD

# Set the SQL statement to be executed.
log4j.appender.DB.sql=INSERT INTO DB.TABLENAME VALUES('%d{yyyy-MM-dd}','%d{HH:mm:ss}','%C','%p','%m')

# Define the layout for file appender
log4j.appender.DB.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
