Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-609) StatusConfiguration doesn't close files
Date Mon, 14 Jul 2014 17:50:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-609?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14060930#comment-14060930

Bruce Brouwer commented on LOG4J2-609:

# You're right. .getStatusLevel() can remain. The important part was removing the caching
of .getStatusLevel() from StatusLogger. I put that back to the way it was before. As for .registerListener(...),
the code on the branch was simplified beyond what is identified in this JIRA as a result of
the mailing list discussion. That is why no such parameter is added to .registerListener(...)
on the branch. It isn't necessary on .registerListener(...) with this simplification. 
# I was originally thinking that status listeners might make some decision based on the Marker.
Also, why not include the marker. Every other piece of information from the logged message
is included. I'm guessing nothing that uses StatusLogger provides a marker so I can see your
point from that perspective. But if we decide to start doing more with StatusLogger and Markers,
it is ready. To prevent the StatusData constructor becoming part of the public API (and possibly
making it harder to add a Marker in the future) I made the constructor package private. This
will allow us to add the Marker back in later without being considered a breaking API change.
What do you think of that? 

If people like this, I'm pretty happy with the way it has turned out without being too impactful.

To recap what was mentioned on the mailing list, 
* The StatusLogger no longer maintains a cached copy of the logger level
* StatusConsoleListener was moved to log4j-core with subclasses of StatusStdErrListener and
StatusStdOutListener which correctly track changes to System.out and System.err
* There is no longer an option in XML or JSON configuration to direct StatusLogger messages
to a file; only System.out and/or System.err

> {{org.apache.logging.log4j.core.config.status.StatusConfiguration}} allows you to specify
a destination such as "out", "err" or a file name. If specifying a file, that file stream
is used when creating a {{StatusConsoleListener}} that is added to the {{StatusLogger}}. Those
{{StatusLogger}} listeners are never cleaned up when, for example, the {{XmlConfiguration}}
is reconfigured or when the {{LoggerContext}} is shut down (e.g. in {{InitialLoggerContext.apply()}}).
This leaves open file handles and is the source of the failing test {{FileOutputTest}} on
