Subject [jira] Commented: (LOG4J2-36) Appender interface should be refactored
Date Tue, 25 May 2010 05:42:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-36?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12871004#action_12871004

Curt Arnold commented on LOG4J2-36:
-----------------------------------

Layout should be part of the Channel since some appenders (such as SocketAppender) do not
contain a Layout.

> Appender interface should be refactored

> The Appender interface in log4j 1.2 (carried over in the rgoers contribution) requires
an implementation to not only define its distinctive logging destination also but also a composite
filter (the addFilter(), getFilter(), getFilters() method).  Because of that almost all custom
appenders in log4j 1.2 extend from AppenderSkeleton to inherit the implementation of composite
filter.  The appender interface should be refactored so it contains a reference to a generic
Filter (which may or may not be a composite filter) and a Channel (or whatever we want to
call the bit that makes one appender different from another).
