Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-373) Classloader issue in OSGi-environment
Date Tue, 18 Feb 2014 04:27:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-373?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13903770#comment-13903770

Matt Sicker commented on LOG4J2-373:

Oh wow, never mind. I found a super simple fix for this. The API change that I mean is an
OSGi API change. It would be preferable to have them match with the project version to some
degree. There may be a need to automate an API change analyzer to enforce proper version numbering
in the bundle.

>             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: 0001-Fix-OSGi-bundle-inheritance-problem.patch, 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();
