Subject [jira] [Updated] (KARAF-1748) Karaf startup fails with NullPointerException when logfile can't be written
Date Sun, 16 Sep 2012 18:28:07 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-1748?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Heath Kesler updated KARAF-1748:

    Attachment: karaf-3.0_1748.diff

updated the BootstrapLogManager to throw exception rather then doing a printstacktrace to
give calling classes more control over what gets printed to the console.  The main class will
now only print out the exception message, but the stack trace will still get logged (if it
is an exception that does not involve an issue with instantiating the log file).  

I am looking for feedback on this patch,I am not 100% convinced that I should not be writing
out the stack trace, but I do not know of an issue where it should.  

All tests pass.
