> PatternLayout's default charset should not be UTF-8
> ---------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: LOG4J2-783
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-783
>             Project: Log4j 2
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Core
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.1, 2.0.2
>         Environment: Win8(Simplified Chinese), Tomcat 7
>            Reporter: Minglei Lee
>            Assignee: Remko Popma
>              Labels: charset, default
>             Fix For: 2.1
>   Original Estimate: 72h
>  Remaining Estimate: 72h
> According to log4j2's manual about PatternLayout's charset attribute, if the attribute
is not specified, the default system Charset will be used.
> But in my environemnt (Win8 Simplified Chinese + Tomcat 7), if the attribute is not specified,
the Chinese words cannot display properly in console. If I add charset="UTF-8" to <Console>'s
<PatternLayout> element, the error still exists. But if I modify it to charset="GBK",
the problem can be resolved.
> So I think, The default charset is UTF-8, not the default system Charset as the manual
announced. I got the source file, and found it in PatternLayout's Builder inner class: 
> private Charset charset = Charsets.UTF_8;
> I modify it to:
> private Charset charset = Charset.defaultCharset();
> and remove the charset attribute in XML's <PatternLayout> element, the Chinese
words can display properly as expected.
> So, I think it may be a bug and reported it here.
> Thanks!
