Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-124) Gracefully stopping LogContext using the api interfaces
Date Tue, 20 Nov 2012 23:20:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-124?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13501573#comment-13501573
] 

Ralph Goers commented on LOG4J2-124:
------------------------------------

The LoggerContext interface currently only exposes 3 methods, getLogger, hasLogger and getExternalContext.
The implementation has many more methods than this including start, stop, isStarted, getConfiguration,
and reconfigure.

If the stop method were to be part of the API I am having trouble determining which of these
should not.  Adding getConfiguration would require making the Configuration interface part
of the API, which i don't believe is appropirate. If getConfiguration isn't there then why
would reconfigure be?  If stop is there then why wouldn't start also be, although I can't
imagine any circumstances where it would be a good idea for an application to call start.

> I'm trying to gracefully close my SocketAppender before exiting the my application to
avoid IOExceptions on the socket server side.  
> Currently I can make it only by using interface the org.apache.logging.log4j.core.Lifecycle
interface in the Log4j2 core  : 
> ((Lifecycle) LogManager.getContext()).stop();
> I would prefer to have a cleaner solution that uses solely the Log4j-api not Log4j-core.

> Did I overlook something or stop() on the API side really missing ?
