      Description

      The xsd schema definition for the log4j configuration allow only one AppenderRef per Logger. The definition of the Logger element is as follows

      <xs:complexType name="LoggerType">
          <xs:sequence>
              <xs:choice minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="1">
                  <xs:element name="Filters" type="FiltersType"/>
                  <xs:element name="Filter" type="FilterType"/>
              </xs:choice>
              <xs:element name="AppenderRef" type="AppenderRefType"/>
          </xs:sequence>
          <xs:attribute name="name" type="xs:string" use="required"/>
          <xs:attribute name="level" type="xs:string" use="optional"/>
          <xs:attribute name="additivity" type="xs:string" use="optional"/>
      </xs:complexType>
      

      Comparing this to the Definition of the root Logger we see a sequence of multiple Appender
      Ref elements to be allowed.

      <xs:complexType name="RootType">
          <xs:sequence>
                  <xs:element name="AppenderRef" type="AppenderRefType" minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
          </xs:sequence>
          <xs:attribute name="level" type="xs:string"/>
      </xs:complexType>
      

      With this configuration it is not possible to define a specific Logger, that shows infos and errors to the console and writes only the errors in a log file, since there can only be one appender defined for that logger.

      Please modify the xsd file to allow mutliple AppenderRef elements per Logger.
