Basic Logging Setup

I am starting out with a new Vaadin project, and I would like to just get basic logging to the console working. I have created a file with this in it:

java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler.level = ALL
java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler.formatter = java.util.logging.SimpleFormatter

which I think should cause all log messages to go to the console. However, that is not happening. No changes to the properties file seem to have any impact on the log messages coming out of Vaadin classes.

I have verified that the file is getting put into the WEB-INF/classes folder.

I am using IntelliJ internal (exploded war artifact) deployment to a Wildfly 8.2 server.

What am I doing wrong?


This is what I have in my properties file:


I also log to a file handler, which I did not add to the above snippet.

In my main program I use the Log manager to point to the file:

LogManager.getLogManager().readConfiguration(new FileInputStream(LOG_FILE)); Let me know if that works for you and I can provide more details if needed, but I think you should be good.
