@Neetu, you can use these steps to write your Selenium Test Cases with Log4j logging:

  1. Create a new XML file – log4j.xml and place it under the Project root folder and Paste the following code in the log4j.xml file:
    • <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <!DOCTYPE log4j:configuration SYSTEM "log4j.dtd">
      <log4j:configuration xmlns:log4j="http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/" debug="false">
      <appender name="fileAppender" class="org.apache.log4j.FileAppender">
      <param name="Threshold" value="INFO" />
      <param name="File" value="logfile.log"/>
      <layout class="org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout">
      <param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d %-5p [%c{1}] %m %n" />
      <level value="INFO"/>
      <appender-ref ref="fileAppender"/>
  2. Now include this logging code in to your test script:
    • package automationTestLog4j;
      import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
      import org.apache.log4j.Logger;
      import org.apache.log4j.xml.DOMConfigurator;
      import org.openqa.selenium.By;
      import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
      import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
      public class Log4j {
          private static WebDriver driver;
          private static Logger Log = Logger.getLogger(Log4j.class.getName());
          public static void main(String[] args) {
              // Create a new instance of the Firefox driver
              driver = new FirefoxDriver();
              Log.info("New driver instantiated");
              //Put a Implicit wait, this means that any search for elements on the page could take the time the implicit wait is set for before throwing exception
              driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(10, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
              Log.info("Implicit wait applied on the driver for 10 seconds");
              //Launch the Online Store Website
              Log.info("Web application launched");
              // Find the element that's ID attribute is 'account'(My Account)
              Log.info("Click action performed on My Account link");
              // Find the element that's ID attribute is 'log' (Username)
              // Enter Username on the element found by above desc.
              Log.info("Username entered in the Username text box");
              // Find the element that's ID attribute is 'pwd' (Password)
              // Enter Password on the element found by the above desc.
              Log.info("Password entered in the Password text box");
              // Now submit the form. WebDriver will find the form for us from the element
              Log.info("Click action performed on Submit button");
              // Print a Log In message to the screen
              System.out.println(" Login Successfully, now it is the time to Log Off buddy.");
               // Find the element that's ID attribute is 'account_logout' (Log Out)
              Log.info("Click action performed on Log out link");
              // Close the driver
              Log.info("Browser closed");
  3. Check the output file “logfile.txt”. The output will look like below:
