----------------------------------

             Summary: KafkaAppender NullPointerException when putting the related jars in
tomcat lib
                 Key: LOG4J2-1535
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1535
             Project: Log4j 2
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Appenders
    Affects Versions: 2.6.2
         Environment: Tomcat 7.0.70
            Reporter: Bill Okara


By putting the log4j2 and kafka appender related jars in tomcat/lib (instead of packaged in
WEB-INF/lib), got NullPointerException when initializing the log4j2.xml.

Steps to reproduce:
1) unzip the attached kafka-test-src.tar.gz, build the project with maven:
> mvn clean package
2) get all the dependency jars by:
> mvn dependency:copy-dependencies
3) copy the *.jar from $project/target/dependency/*.jar to tomcat/lib/
4) deploy the war to tomcat
5) start tomcat 

Will see errors like:
Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException at org.apache.kafka.clients.producer.KafkaProducer.close(KafkaProducer.java:658)
