Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1243) Faulty placeholder substitution in config xml
Date Wed, 27 Apr 2016 05:47:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1243?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15259590#comment-15259590

Ralph Goers commented on LOG4J2-1243:

If I am understanding this issue correctly the desire is to have a substitution where the
default value can be a lookup expression with its own default value.

>             Project: Log4j 2
>          Issue Type: Bug

>         Environment: JDK 8

> I'm using log4j 2.5 in a REST service.
> There I would like to use the placeholder substitution to allow configuration of the
log location.
> I tried this:
> {code:xml}
> <Properties>
> <!-- sets the path for log4j logs:
> 1. check whether java system property myapp.logs is set. If not:
> 2. check whether the OS environment variable MYAPP_LOGS is set. If not:
> 3. use logs dir in the current directory
> -->
> <Property name="logsPath">${sys:mypapp.logs:-${env:MYAPP_LOGS:-logs}}</Property>
> </Properties>
> {code}
> This seems to work quite well with the exception, if myapp.logs is set, the path ends
with "}". So if I set the system property "-Dmyapp.logs=foobar" it creates the directory "foobar}"
and puts the logs into that. For the ENV substitution it works. It also works when NO placeholder
nesting is performed. So I guess the problem has something todo with that.
