Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1301) Automatic reconfiguration with xml and xinclude
Date Mon, 07 Mar 2016 20:57:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1301?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15183688#comment-15183688

Gary Gregory commented on LOG4J2-1301:
--------------------------------------

I think the general approach is to leave XML processing as is.

It seems that the proper way to address this generally and for ALL configuration file formats
(JSON, XML, YAML) is to finally invent "merging multiple configuration files". 

This is not designed yet.

> Automatic reconfiguration does not work with xinclude/xml.
> Modifying xinclude files is not detected as a file change on on the main config file
and as such it is not reconfigured when updates are made to files included with xinclude (ie.
log4j2-appenders.xml).
> Desired functionality would be to also listen for changes of files that are included
by main configuration file as well and update the configuration as needed.
> An alternative would be to allow user to specify additional files to monitor for changes.
