Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-554) No easy way to point to a configuration file in the WEB-INF folder
Date Fri, 28 Feb 2014 17:58:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-554?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13916099#comment-13916099

Remko Popma commented on LOG4J2-554:

{{log4jConfiguration}} is the old log4j-1.2 system property name. Log4j2 uses a different
system property name, {{log4j.configurationFile}} to specify the config file location. 

Also, I think it is fine for a web container to decide that /WEB-INF means the WEB-INF  folder
under the root of a war file, but I don't think you can ask log4j to look at the world that
way. The root is the root of the file system, I think. 

About the error message, that does sound like a separate issue.

>             Project: Log4j 2
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Configurators
>    Affects Versions: 2.0-beta9
>         Environment: WildFly 8.0.0, JDK 1.7.0_45, WIn7
>            Reporter: Russell J. Nile
>            Priority: Minor
> I am trying to put all of my configuration files under WEB-INF/config folder but there
is no way (other than an explicit reference to my file system) to set the log4jConfiguration
to point to that.  It also does not report any errors when it can't find the file log4jConfiguration
(unless there is a URI reference error) so you are scratching your head when it does nothing.
