Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1347) AsyncAppender - Allow serialization of custom LogEvents
Date Sat, 02 Apr 2016 14:58:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1347?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15222910#comment-15222910

John Strickler commented on LOG4J2-1347:
----------------------------------------

Remko, I switched from a mixed approach to using async everywhere by using {{AsyncLoggerContextSelector}}.
 I didn't initially see a way to produce custom log events this way so I'm pairing it with
ThreadContext and doing away with custom logevent and custom converters.  I have to scale
this out company-wide so I'm going to keep hammering at it until I find the ideal solution.

>            Priority: Minor
>
> This request is for an improvement to AsyncAppender to allow sublasses of Log4jLogEvent
to be serialized without losing their specific type.
> The current functionality is that AsyncAppender will serialize all subclasses back to
a true instance of Log4jLogEvent.  In the process, all extra information is lost that was
provided by the subclass.
> _AsyncAppender, line 156:_
> bq. final Serializable serialized = Log4jLogEvent.serialize(coreEvent, includeLocation);
> *Use Case*
> Subclasses of Log4jLogEvent that contain the authenticated principal to be logged.
