> I just did a POC to use decanter as a distributed logging system for spring boot applications.
> My first approach was to use the log4j socket appender to log into a local (but separate
process) decanter-agent that then forwards to kafka.
> A central decanter server would then pick up the logs and store them into ES. The disadvantage
was that each node needs a local decanter-agent which makes the packaging for the cloud more
difficult.
> So I looked into a way to embed decanter into spring boot and found felix connect. It
allows to pick some bundles from the normal classpath and start them in a partial OSGi container.
> It seems to be good enough to nicely host decanter and the kafka appender. I created
a custom logback appender class for spring boot that forwards all logs into the embedded decanter
instance.
> To make it easy to use I packaged this as a spring boot starter. So people only have
to add the dependency and configure their logging to use the new decanter appender.
