    I actually want the log messages of log4j to be displayed in the TestNG output , which is currently not working.

    Sharon, You have to use the Reporter class instead of Log4J to pass on the logs in TestNG. You can also Implement the IReporter interface to have your custom reporter class.

    We can also direct Log4J logs to Reporter by writing a small wrapper. I Dont have a code for this as of now, but can come up with one soon.

    Hi Sharon

    If Log4j functionality is still not working in your framework. Please share your Log4j Code which is not working will rectify that one.

    Actually my code works absolutely fine.
    But the lines we print using Log4j eg: ┬á“New driver instantiated”);
    Does not get reflected in TestNG report.
    But using line Eg: Reporter.log(“Clicking on daily link”, true); reflects in TestNG(which is not an log4j reporting)
    I want to know how to print the log statement in TestNG.
