Subject [jira] [Created] (LOG4J2-804) XInclude does not respect classpath
Date Wed, 27 Aug 2014 16:55:58 GMT
Alex Barnes created LOG4J2-804:

             Summary: XInclude does not respect classpath
                 Key: LOG4J2-804
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-804
             Project: Log4j 2
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Configurators
            Reporter: Alex Barnes

This issue is related to the one resolved by https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-341

The <xi:include> element does not respect entries provided on the classpath. 

Specific use case: I have a log4j2.xml configuration I wish to share across several applications
providing a common base of appenders and plugins, these are bundled into a myorg-logging.jar
to be used in downstream projects that wish to provide configuration for their loggers. In
the myorg-logging log4j2.xml I wish to optionally include a file from the classpath called

== log4j2.xml ==
  <logger name="root" level="env:rootLogLevel:-WARN"/>
  <logger name="my.org" level="env:myOrgLogLevel:-INFO"/>
  <xi:include href="myorg-logging.xml">

I also noticed once a Loggers or Appenders section has been declared in xml, it can not be
appended to with a second Loggers or Appenders section (which would be nice for a top level
additive xi:include scenario instead of limiting to an included file just for loggers, a file
just for appenders, etc)
