A dumb question about logging

Hi all,

i ran into some problems using the pregenerated static Location "logger" instance of an arbitrary WD controller for logging.

So far i used this logger in conjunction with a superior Category instance only, e.g. the logging (and tracing, if minimum severity is configurated at a proper level) output was related to a category like "/Application/MaterialManagement" or whatever.

Now i tried to use the logger without a category after a long time again, but i didn't succeed to generate any output!?!

So my question is: What do i have to do (configurate) to produce some output from this Location? I remember, that in earlier versions there has been a (file-based) WDRx.log, which kept all WD-related output of the configurated severity level. Do i have to reactivate this somehow?

Thanks in advance.

    i found it by myself. I looked into the wrong trace (dispatcher's default trace instead of server's default trace, aehem).

    For all of you who want to know where the logging output goes by default:

    If you use the

      private static final logger =;

    generated by the WD generation framework for example like

      public void wdDoInit()
        final String _methodName = "wdDoInit()";
        try {
          logger.infoT("Time to do something useful.");
        } finally {

    the complete output of the logger will be output to the trace which is displayable in the "Log Viewer" service of the Visual Admin at "Cluster (xx)->Server xx->.\log->10:defaultTrace.trc"

    Since there's an identical entry under the "Dispatcher xx" node (should have number 32), take care not to view the wrong one 😉
