+          Scanning for annotated classes dynamically takes a bit of time during application
initialization. Log4j
+          avoids this by scanning its classes during the build. In the Maven build, the PluginManager
is invoked as
+          shown below and then the resulting Map is stored in a file in the jar being constructed.
Log4j will locate
+          all the files created this way and and preload them, which shortens startup time
considerably. Adding the
+          following plugin definition to your project's pom.xml will cause the plugin manager
to be called during the
+          build. It will store the resulting file in the correct location under the directory
specified in the first
+          argument after scanning all the components located under the package specified
in the second argument.
