Subject [jira] [Created] (LOG4J2-1537) Experience of a newbie to logging
Date Sat, 20 Aug 2016 19:52:21 GMT
d created LOG4J2-1537:

             Summary: Experience of a newbie to logging
                 Key: LOG4J2-1537
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1537
             Project: Log4j 2
          Issue Type: Improvement
         Environment: idea 2016, maven
            Reporter: d
            Priority: Minor

Not sure if this is the right place for general feedback but here goes:

I wanted to learn to use loggers, googling told me log4j2 was popular so I had a go with it.
I feel the documentation is extremely lacking / poorly organized for a first timer - I've
used java for a few years but never loggers. 

One problem that completely stopped me getting anywhere - I cannot get log4j2 to access the
configuration file. I can access the classpath and properties file myself fine but log4j refuses
to find it. I'm using the latest intellij idea with maven. Here is some more info: http://pastebin.com/7Nix7zME

I think for now I will abandon trying to use log4j, it doesn't feel logger-newbie friendly
