Subject Re: ContextData / StringMap, non-String values and Thread Context
Date Tue, 18 Oct 2016 16:23:49 GMT
By providing a StringMap interface that allows Object values we unlocked numerous custom extensions
that the previous Map<String, String> interface did not allow. 

However the public API should probably stay restricted to String values, at least for now.
This is to prevent memory leaks in web applications: in web applications ThreadLocals should
only contain JDK classes. 
We may be able to add a public ThreadContext::putValue(String, Object) method after https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1116
has been addressed.

in org.apache.logging.log4j.ThreadContext?
