-----------------------------------------------------------------

The only thing that supports the log4j 1 properties files is Log4j 1.x.  That was declared
EOL 2 years ago. The last release of Log4j 1 was 5 1/2 years ago. It doesn't run in Java 9
without hacking it.

At some point you are going to have to get off of Log4j 1.

The log4j team started an effort to create a properties file converter but it would only be
able to convert Appenders & Layouts that are part of Log4j 1 itself. That is working to
some degree but is still considered experimental. Any user created Appenders and Layouts would
not be able to be migrated. As we would not be able to convert them to a Log4j 2 plugin.

That said, we welcome any ideas or contributions anyone wants to contribute to make the migration
easier.
