Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1038) Incorrect documentation for layout default charset
Date Tue, 02 Jun 2015 21:05:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1038?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14569765#comment-14569765

Gary Gregory commented on LOG4J2-1038:

Each layout is different. The root of layouts that use a charset is {{org.apache.logging.log4j.core.layout.AbstractStringLayout}}
and the default there is UTF-8.

Each layout that extends {{org.apache.logging.log4j.core.layout.AbstractStringLayout}} can
provide its own default.

Which layout are you talking about?

>             Project: Log4j 2
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Documentation, Layouts
>    Affects Versions: 2.1
>            Reporter: Gili
> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-255 states that the default charset is the
system default (a fact I confirmed by running local tests). http://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/manual/layouts.html
incorrectly states that the default charset is UTF-8.
> Please update the documentation to state that the default is the system default and strongly
recommend (in bold) that the user sets an explicit charset.
