Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1586) Automatic Reconfiguration not working when edit and save log4j2.xml in NetBeans /build/WEB-INF
Date Fri, 16 Sep 2016 11:14:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1586?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15496047#comment-15496047

Remko Popma commented on LOG4J2-1586:

Isn't the  /build/web/WEB-INF/classes/ directory the place where Netbeans will copy compiled
class files to?
This directory is likely to be overwritten automatically when you rebuilld the project.

It may be better to modify the source log4j2.xml file (and confirm that saving the source
log4j2.xml file also results in the copy in  /build/web/WEB-INF/classes/ being updated).

> When configured from a File, Log4j has the ability to automatically detect changes to
the configuration file and reconfigure itself. If the monitorInterval attribute is specified
on the configuration element and is set to a non-zero value then the file will be checked
the next time a log event is evaluated and/or logged and the monitorInterval has elapsed since
the last check. The example below shows how to configure the attribute so that the configuration
file will be checked for changes only after at least 30 seconds have elapsed. The minimum
interval is 5 seconds.

Automatic Reconfiguration magic fails. The log4j2.xml is otherwise found and seems to work

I get: 
> {code}
> admin-listener(2) DEBUG Configuration XmlConfiguration[location=/Users/.../webapp/build/web/WEB-IN‌​F/classes/log4j2.xml‌​]
> {code}
> But editing the log levels in that log4j2.xml file does not get caught.
