Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1347) AsyncAppender - Allow serialization of custom LogEvents
Date Sat, 02 Apr 2016 01:37:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1347?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15222632#comment-15222632
] 

Remko Popma commented on LOG4J2-1347:
-------------------------------------

Also, any reason to prefer AsyncAppender to Async Loggers? Note that the [mixed form of Async
Loggers|http://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/manual/async.html#MixedSync-Async] is implemented
to use the LogEvent produced by the factory all the way through to the layout. So there is
no loss of information here. (But this may change when LOG4J2-1334 is implemented, so we should
coordinate if you're interested in using Async Loggers.)

> This request is for an improvement to AsyncAppender to allow sublasses of Log4jLogEvent
to be serialized without losing their specific type.
> The current functionality is that AsyncAppender will serialize all subclasses back to
a true instance of Log4jLogEvent.  In the process, all extra information is lost that was
provided by the subclass.
> _AsyncAppender, line 156:_
> bq. final Serializable serialized = Log4jLogEvent.serialize(coreEvent, includeLocation);
> *Use Case*
> Subclasses of Log4jLogEvent that contain the authenticated principal to be logged.
