8.2. Logging

In order to make JBoss Transaction Service logging semantically consistent with JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, the TransactionManagerService service modifies the level of some log messages by overriding the value of the com.arjuna.common.util.logger property given in the jbossjta-properties.xml file. Therefore, the value of this property has no effect on the logging behavior when the transaction service is embedded in JBoss Enterprise Application Platform. By forcing use of the log4j_releveler logger, the TransactionManagerService service causes all INFO level messages in the transaction code to be modified to be shown as DEBUG messages. As a side effect, these messages do not appear in log files if the filter level is INFO. All other log messages behave as normal.
