How do I log a stacktrace to log4j?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • We are using log4j our applicaiton logs. Normal logs are written properly, but when I try to print a stack trace it isn't showing up properly. Here is how we are catching an exception and trying to log the error message:
catch (Exception e) {
    debug("Exception in copying file: " + e.getStackTrace());

And this is what it looks like in our logs:

2013-11-21 17:51:45,854 341901 DEBUG [] Exception in copying file: [Ljava.lang.StackTraceElement;@5cd983be
