TOS 6.4.1 for Data Integration under Linux - Problems with log4j, no value for TalendJob.log



I use TOS 6.4.1 under Ubuntu Linux.


My log4j.xml file is as follows:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 
<!DOCTYPE log4j:configuration SYSTEM "log4j.dtd">
<log4j:configuration xmlns:log4j='' >
      <!--  CONSOLE appender  -->
    <appender name="CONSOLE" class="org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender">
        <layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">
             <!--         <param name="ConversionPattern"      value="[%-5p]: %c - %m%n" />  -->
             <param name="ConversionPattern"  value="%d{yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss} [%t] %-5p %c{1}:%L - %m%n" />
    <!-- DRFILE appender example -->
    <appender name="DRFILE" class="org.apache.log4j.DailyRollingFileAppender">         
       <param name="file" value="${TalendJob.log}"/>
       <param name="DatePattern" value="'.'yyyy-MM-dd" />
       <layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">
            <param name="ConversionPattern"  value="%d{yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss.SSS} [%t] %-5p %c{1}:%L - %m%n" />
    <!-- Spring Logger -->   
    <logger name="">   
        <level value="WARN" />   
        <appender-ref ref="CONSOLE"/>
    <!-- throwableRenderer <throwableRenderer class="org.apache.log4j.EnhancedThrowableRenderer"/>-->  
    <!-- logstash appender -->
      <!-- <appender name="LOGSTASH" class="">
          <param name="RemoteHost" value="localhost"/>
          <param name="Port" value="8052"/>
    </appender> -->
    <!-- Root Logger -->   
        <priority value ="INFO"/>
        <appender-ref ref="CONSOLE"/>
        <appender-ref ref="DRFILE"/>   
        <!-- <appender-ref ref="LOGSTASH"/> -->


I' not sure if the log4j.xml file is correct, and I use tInitLog4J und tLog4J from Talend Exchange. By the way, do these Components work 100% correctly with TOS 6.4.1.


When I run my Talend Job, I get the following error:


Starting job MyJob at 14:10 05/01/2018.

What is wrong?

How did you set the field 'Path to the Log4J configuration file'? Does it exist on your local machine?
