Subject [jira] [Created] (LOG4J2-1565) PluginManager should be able to load plugins via SPI
Date Tue, 06 Sep 2016 19:05:22 GMT
Philip Helger created LOG4J2-1565:

             Summary: PluginManager should be able to load plugins via SPI
                 Key: LOG4J2-1565
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1565
             Project: Log4j 2
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: Plugins
    Affects Versions: 2.6.2
            Reporter: Philip Helger

I want to setup a custom configuration using a special factory class (based on https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/manual/customconfig.html)
As this will run in an Application server I don't have access to the system properties or
to the main to call {ConfigurationFactory.setConfigurationFactory}
Therefore I suggest to add an SPI loading mechanism for ConfigurationFactory as well. See
https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/ext/basics/spi.html for details on SPI.
Do you think this could work, or would this be a problem, if Tomcat itself is configured to
use log4j? Maybe it can be done upon Servlet initialization as done in the log4j2-web project.
