How do I change log file location (soapui.log soapui-errors.log)

HI,
  I'm using Soapui-2.0 on a RH Linux box, I'm a build engineer calling Ant from Hudson (sort of like cruise control but better imho) . i'm exec-ing a script to call a modified version of testrunner.sh and have hacked testrunner.sh to run with the following flags -a -j -h $host -f $resultsdir $xmlfile. The problem I have is the log files (soapui.log and soapui-errors.log) are being written to the ANT parent directory. I can probably change the location to SOAPUI_HOME by doing a chdir to SOAPUI_HOME in my script, However that would put all the log files from every build there.

I've been reading about soapui-log4j.xml , and soapui.properties  but I can't find any examples of either, and have exactly zero experience writing log4j.xml files.

I would like to have a way to write the log files to a results directory that gets clobbered before every run.

Thanks in advance for any help
Pete

Hi Pete,

you can modify the soapui-log4j.xml file in the soapui-2.0.2.jar and put the modified file into the soapui\bin folder. Change the FILE and ERRORFILE appenders File parameter to the desired location.

Hope this helps!

Re: How do I change log file location (soapui.log soapui-errors.log)

Thank you this works.

I was able to set it as a variable. I added an additional flag to testrunner.sh

soapui_log_dir=$4

then passed it to to java.

java -Dsoapui.properties=soapui.properties -
Dsoapui.log.dir=${soapui_log_dir}
-cp $SOAPUI_CLASSPATH com.eviware.soapui.tools.SoapUITestCaseRunner $options

This allows me to define the log dir on the fly from my ant task that kicks off the soap ui tests.

In the soapui-log4j.xml file I changed the lines you suggested to

Another way I found out is described below.
This was needed for integrating SoapUI in a test utility (web application) for generating requests and responses based on the WSDL. This prevents the logs of the server/application to disappear from the server log file. To make it complete, I've also added a part of the WSDLMessageGenerator.

if ( wsdlgen == null ) {
// Make sure we maintain the environment
SoapUI.setSoapUICore(new ServerSoapUICore());
wsdlgen = new WSDLMessageGenerator();
}
---------
public class ServerSoapUICore extends DefaultSoapUICore {

@Override
protected void initLog() {
// We keep on using the log of the server....
log = Logger.getLogger( DefaultSoapUICore.class );
}

@Override
public Settings getSettings() {
if ( log == null ) {
initLog();
}
return super.getSettings();
}
}
---------------------
public class WSDLMessageGenerator {
private WsdlProject project;
private WsdlInterface iface;

public WSDLMessageGenerator() throws Exception {
project = new WsdlProject();
}

....
WsdlInterface[] wsdls = WsdlImporter.importWsdl(project, wsdlLocation);
iface = wsdls[0];
}


Hope it helps!
Mike.

Re: How do I change log file location (soapui.log soapui-err

FYI:
For SoapUI version 4 option -Dsoapui.log.dir is not valid anymore
the proper name is -Dsoapui.logroot

Re: How do I change log file location (soapui.log soapui-err

also not valid for 3.6.1
use -Dsoapui.logroot as for 4.x version
