[logback-user] RES: Doubt about multiple configurations

Logback first looks for logback-test.xml.


Would it be permissible for you to provide _that_ and then from within that do your own stuff, and then include the official logback.xml?


If it can inspire, I am using the facility of logback looking for logback.xml in the classpath, and then it only consist of an include instruction to allow me to locate the actual configuration in a file relative to my current working directory.

Subject: [logback-user] RES: Doubt about multiple configurations





It’s almost that!

My problem is I have to use a specific logback configuration and I cannot modify it, because the

Client archteture do not allow this possibility to us.


So, that “include” you suggested, unfortunatelly I also cannot use.


Is there a possibility to use another logback configuration totally separated from the

application logback configuration?


Is there a possibility to have a logback.xml to the application and another logback_specific.xml to specific

application points, to generate a specific business log?


Thank you very much,

In your main logback.XML you can include another like this:



  <include file="src/main/java/chapters/configuration/includedConfig.xml"/>

  <root level="DEBUG">

    <appender-ref ref="includedConsole" />





Then in your second file you can configure multiple appenders. 


Does that work? I'm not 100% sure I understand the question.

Hi Logbackers,


In my application, I need multiple configurations to generate multiple files.


The first problem is, I have to use one logback configuration with no modifications (because we have to use a

proprietary framework, it is a framework of our client), so I have to keep a main configuration.


The second problem is, the business of my application needs more than 3 different logs, so I need at list one more

Logback configuration where I can put more than one file appender.


My question is: How can I have one more logback configuration that do not have any application dependencies. That

can be read from a “Helper/Util” class without any help from the infrastruture (ex: Spring).


Or, if anyone have another idea?


Thanks a lot!
