Subject Re: [External] Log4j2 - combining .properties and .xml config files
Date Mon, 20 Aug 2018 11:11:45 GMT

We are using hybris with log4j2 and in hybris we have to set log4j2.config.xml in order to
use the xml configuration from log4j2.
I like to combine properties and xml config both in hybris. Do you have any ideas how to get
this running?

    I don’t understand what you are trying to do here. Why do you have both log4j2.configurationFile
and log4j.configurationFile? Only one of them will take effect. What is log4j2.config.xml?
Last I checked, Log4j2 doesn’t have a property with that name.
    I thought you were asking about composite configurations but I don’t see you trying
to do that here.
