Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-373) Classloader issue in OSGi-environment
Date Thu, 06 Feb 2014 06:50:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-373?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13893107#comment-13893107

Remko Popma commented on LOG4J2-373:

Norval, it may be a good idea to raise the problem you are experiencing in a separate Jira
ticket and link to this ticket.

That way you can provide more detail about the problem you are seeing (stack trace, perhaps
source code for a failing unit test or some other way for us to reproduce the issue) by attaching
to that ticket. 

It is possible that the underlying cause is the same but it is difficult to tell at the moment.

>             Project: Log4j 2
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: API, Core
>    Affects Versions: 2.0-beta9
>         Environment: OSGi R5 / R4 (Apache Felix 4.x)
>            Reporter: Roland Weiglhofer
>            Priority: Critical
>              Labels: ClassLoader, OSGI
>         Attachments: log4j-api.patch
> Using Log4j2 in a bundle causes following error:
> ERROR StatusLogger org.apache.logging.log4j.core.impl.Log4jContextFactory does not implement
> ERROR StatusLogger Unable to locate a logging implementation, using SimpleLogger
> printing the ClassLoaders in LogManager gives me following output:
> org.apache.logging.log4j.spi.LoggerContextFactory loaded by org.apache.logging.log4j-api
> org.apache.logging.log4j.core.impl.Log4jContextFactory loaded by sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader@35a16869
> We have two different ClassLoaders. That's why the implementation is not assignable.
The core uses the bootstrap-classloader and the api uses the bundle-classloader.
> Workaround needed. Thx
> addendum:
> ProviderUtil.findClassLoader() returns the bootstrap-classloader but not the bundle-classloader
of the log4j2-core. The log4j2-core is a fragment of the log4j2-api bundle. Thus, ProviderUtil.findClassLoader()
must return the bundle-classloader of log4j2-api. This a bug for the case that log4j2-core
is used as the implementation. There are other cases that will also cause problems. Further
investigations are necessary.
> Workaround:
> 1. check if log4j2 runs in an OSGI container.
> Bundle mybundle = org.osgi.framework.FrameworkUtil.getBundle(MyClass.this);
> 2. if(mybundle != null), than get bundle-classloader of log4j2-impl.
> mybundle.adapt(BundleWiring.class).getClassLoader();
