Subject Re: lo4j2.xml in EAR
Date Sun, 02 Nov 2014 00:00:35 GMT
I am not aware that we have implemented any specific support for EARs. That said, I am not
sure we need to. I’ve also looked at the Log4j 1.x code and don’t see anything specific
to supporting META-INF or EARs.

Log4j will load log4j2.xml from the classpath, so you should be able to do something like
what is described at https://developer.jboss.org/wiki/HowToPutAnExternalFileInTheClasspath
<https://developer.jboss.org/wiki/HowToPutAnExternalFileInTheClasspath>. I believe you
can also place it in the /lib directory or whatever directory is defined in the library-directory
element of the deployment descriptor. See http://javahowto.blogspot.com/2006/10/use-library-directory-in-javaee-5-apps.html

What app server are you using?
