Subject [jira] [Commented] (GEODE-189) Configure log4j2 on classpath instead of with system property
Date Thu, 15 Oct 2015 21:36:05 GMT


ASF subversion and git services commented on GEODE-189:

Commit 21743ec131735cb7c3fd11c6a4ce3e18b79b06f9 in incubator-geode's branch refs/heads/feature/GEODE-77
from []
[;h=21743ec ]

GEODE-189: Configure Log4J 2 using classpath instead of system property

Rename log4j2-default.xml to log4j2.xml. Move log4j2.xml and
log4j2-cli.xml to the root of the gemfire-core JAR file. By default
Log4J 2 will find and use the log4j2.xml in the JAR file unless the
user places a custom config file earlier in the classpath or specifies
the log4j.configurationFile system property.

The new JGroups JAR also contains log4j2.xml in its root, so we need to
ensure that gemfire-core JAR is on the classpath before JGroups.

Upgrade System-Rules JUnit library to 1.12.1.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.0-incubating
>            Reporter: Kirk Lund
>            Assignee: Kirk Lund
>             Fix For: 1.0.0-incubating
> This change is necessary for GEODE-77. It's easier to complete on its own feature branch
and then be cherry-picked over to feature/GEODE-77.
> Geode configures Log4J2 using a system property, however, if a configuration file is
already found on the classpath then it will defer configuration to that file. The new JGroups
jar contains a log4j2.xml config file in its root, so Log4J2 finds it on the classpath and
always uses it instead of Geode's log4j2-default.xml.
> This change would involve moving Geode's log4j2-default.xml to the root of the gemfire-core
jar file and rename it to log4j2.xml. The gemfire-core jar would then be placed earlier on
the classpath than the jgroups jar so that the default configuration of Geode prefers the
one in the gemfire-core jar.
