I am having trouble getting slf4j/logback to work in my webapp that is
getting deployed in Tomcat. I have changed all of my application classes to
import and use the slf4j classes, I compile with them and then deploy a war
that Tomcat expands into the webapp dir. My logback.xml file shows up in the
WEB-INF/classes directory of my application but no log file gets
created/written to. I used the log4j Properties translator page to get this
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

  <appender name="F"
    <layout class="ch.qos.logback.classic.PatternLayout">
      <pattern>%d{dd MMM yyyy HH:mm:ss} %c{3}:%L - %m%n</pattern>
  <logger name="com.opensymphony.oscache">
    <level value="ERROR"/>
... in here there a bunch more logger elements that set the level for
various things.
  <logger name="com.vizible">
    <level value="DEBUG"/>
    <level value="INFO"/>
    <appender-ref ref="F"/>

I am expecting to see a file in the Tomcat logs directory called "srvc2.log"
but I don't see anything and none of the regular Tomcat logs show anything.
I am running Tomcat as a service in windows XP.

Am I missing something?? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
