Subject [jira] [Created] (LOG4J2-1037) Backward compatibility issue with log4j-1.2-api
Date Tue, 02 Jun 2015 06:13:18 GMT
Marc Dergacz created LOG4J2-1037:

             Summary: Backward compatibility issue with log4j-1.2-api
                 Key: LOG4J2-1037
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1037
             Project: Log4j 2
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: log4j 1.2 emulation
    Affects Versions: 2.2
            Reporter: Marc Dergacz
            Priority: Minor

While going through and migrating our projects to log4j 2.2, there are several apps and 3rd
party libraries that we use that depend on log4j 1.2.

Whilst the log4j-1.2-api library pretty much works flawlessly for us, I ran into an issue
today with the opensaml1 library which breaks when it tries to call NDC.pop().

In log4j 1.2, NDC.pop() would check to see if the stack was empty and if it was, returned
an empty string but with the log4j-1.2-api library, the DefaultThreadContextStack.pop() ends
up throwing a NoSuchElementException which causes everything to fall over for us.

Given the library is meant to provide backwards compatibility, shouldn't the behaviour also
be the same?  At present, upgrading the OpenSAML library isn't an option frustratingly.
