Subject Re: what are pdfbox logging requirements?
Date Wed, 06 Apr 2016 17:23:06 GMT
I just attach the log4j 1.2.17 jar (i.e. the "old" log4j), a 
log4j.properties file and it works nicely.

I've never tried log4j2 because the "old" log4j does the job I need. (my 
car is several years old too, and I'm also keeping it as long as it 
doesn't have any annoying problems)

Maybe somebody else can help who has used log4j2 ?
