Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1537) Experience of a newbie to logging
Date Sat, 20 Aug 2016 20:17:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1537?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15429501#comment-15429501

Ralph Goers commented on LOG4J2-1537:

Please see http://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/runtime-dependencies.html. YAML support requires
Jackson as an additional dependency.

http://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/manual/configuration.html#AutomaticConfiguration should
be modified to mention that extra dependencies are required for JSON and YAML. Also, I don't
see any YAML configuration examples on the Configuration page.

>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: feedback
> 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:
> I think for now I will abandon trying to use log4j, it doesn't feel logger-newbie friendly
