Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-4757) Replace log4j.properties with log4j.xml
Date Tue, 23 Feb 2010 13:40:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-4757?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12837235#action_12837235

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-4757:
----------------------------------------

To back up Michal, a build of trunk from last week has a log4j.properties file in both hadoop-core
and hadoop-hdfs JARs, which can only cause confusion in a standalone Hadoop installation,
let alone for anyone trying to embed the JARS into anything else.

> Certain log4j features are not configurable via the log4j.properties file, not to mention
the log4j.properties file is messy.  For this reason, we should transition to a XML file to
configure log4j.  The .properties vs. .xml argument has only come up in HADOOP-211, where
the XML configuration was vetoed for Tomcat integration issues.
