Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-696) RegexFilter does not match multiline log messages
Date Mon, 07 Jul 2014 13:08:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-696?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14053631#comment-14053631

Gary Gregory commented on LOG4J2-696:

We might not be able to use {{org.apache.logging.log4j.core.config.plugins.util.TypeConverters.PatternConverter}}
if we want to support the int flag for {{java.util.regex.Pattern.compile(String, int)}}.

It seems the solution is to change {{org.apache.logging.log4j.core.filter.RegexFilter.createFilter(Pattern,
Boolean, Result, Result)}} and either:

- Add an int parameter and let user compute the flag themselves, or
- Add a String parameter and allow users to say things like "CASE_INSENSITIVE | MULTILINE"
but that means parsing such things.

Perhaps we should just start with an int flag.

>          Issue Type: Bug

>    Affects Versions: 2.0-rc2
>            Reporter: phil wray
>         Attachments: RegexFilterTest.java
> RegexFilter is constructed with a pattern, but pattern does not support multiline matches,
so impossible for the filter to ever match a multiline msg.
> Should maybe provide a multline="x attribute whichi should default to true and result
in the patter being compiled as such:
> Pattern pattern = Pattern.compile(".*line.*", Pattern.DOTALL);
> See attached UnitTest illustrating failure
