Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1636) Console Appender does not pick up Oracle Java 8's sun.stdout.encoding and sun.stderr.encoding
Date Mon, 10 Oct 2016 19:10:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1636?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15563185#comment-15563185

Eldar Gabdullin commented on LOG4J2-1636:

No need to say, that relying on {{sun.stdout.encoding}} is a very weak point.

Can we instead consider the following:

Tweak {{ConsoleAppender}} in such a way, that if it's layout is an instance of {{AbstractStringLayout}},
then do the following for writing

1) decode bytes back to string,
2) call {{.print()}} method

Now, this is backwards incompatible. Add an option to disable this behavior.

>          Issue Type: Bug

> The Oracle Java 8 platform supports two system properties to configure the System console:
sun.stdout.encoding and sun.stderr.encoding.
> ----
> Default log4j configuration prints to console using platform's default encoding, however
that's not what standard windows console expects.
> I.e.
> {code}
> System.out.println("Поехали"); // works just fine
> System.out.write("Поехали!\n".getBytes(Charset.defaultCharset())); // characters
are messed up
> log.info("Поехали"); // messed up in the same way
> {code}
> This happens not just on one machine, but on all Windows desktops and servers in our
> Can we have out of the box Layout/Appender which prints directly to System.out/err?
