Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-797) log4j-core should be listed as runtime dependency
Date Tue, 26 Aug 2014 04:01:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-797?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14110243#comment-14110243

Matt Sicker commented on LOG4J2-797:
------------------------------------

The problem with recommending it as a runtime dependency is you need it at compile-time, too,
if you have any custom plugins. It contains an annotation processor that makes that possible
without additional configuration. This could be a rather confusing idea; personally, I'd make
the API a provided dependency and Core a runtime dependency (or provided) while integrating
Log4j in my container instead. Then again, that's a bit futuristic at this point.

>    Affects Versions: 2.0.2

> The documentation (website: http://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/maven-artifacts.html)
lists "log4j-core" as compile dependency (Gradle). 
> While this at not wrong, it does not hit the idea of api/core separation. Thus I suggest
to list "log4j-core" as runtime dependency, i.e.
> {code}
> dependencies {
>   compile group: 'org.apache.logging.log4j', name: 'log4j-api', version: '2.0.2'
>   runtime group: 'org.apache.logging.log4j', name: 'log4j-core', version: '2.0.2'
> }
> {code}
