Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-621) Pattern To Drop First X Package Parts
Date Thu, 21 Apr 2016 08:10:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-621?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15251527#comment-15251527

Kamal Mettananda commented on LOG4J2-621:

Hi all

I looked at this request which seems to be a very useful feature IMHO, specially given that
it provides a way to remove the first known packages list from the Logger name or caller's
name in [Patter Layout|http://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/manual/layouts.html#PatternLayout].

It seems we can implement this change by supporting a negative integer in the precision section
of the following pattern configurations.

* c\{precision}
* logger\{precision}
* C{precision}
* class{precision}

> Currently you can have a pattern that will print out the last X parts of you package.
 So if my package was {{uk.co.ltheobald.foo.bar}}, then using {{%logger\{2\}}} will print
{{foo.bar}}.  But when I have a number of different package levels, this becomes less useful
(in my opinion).
> What I'd find more useful is the inverse where I can ditch the first X parts.  Something
like {{%logger\{-3\}}} for example.  That way I'd end up with:
> {{uk.co.ltheobald.Main logging}} as {{Main}}
> {{uk.co.ltheobald.foo.MyClass}} logging as {{foo.MyClass}}
> {{uk.co.ltheobald.foo.bar.MyOtherClass}} logging as {{foo.bar.MyOtherClass}}
> Removing from the start of the logger name allows me to consistently trim off package
names that I know are always the same.  I'll see if I can produce a code example for this
if I get time but I wanted to log it in the meanwhile.
