> As discussed on the mailing list ([1] and [2]), Log4j 2 is in need of some database appenders.
I have added this new feature and will attach a patch shortly. The patch contains:
> - A slight change to PatternLayout. Currently it is not possible to create a PatternLayout
that doesn't always handle exceptions. If you leave all exception handling out of the pattern,
an exception handler is forcibly added to the end of the pattern. This behavior is controlled
by a flag, but that flag is always hard-coded to false. I added a parameter for it. This was
necessary for the JDBC appender.
> - o.a.l.l.core.appender.db.AbstractDatabaseManager and AbstractDatabaseAppender, together
in concert, take care of some core functionality common across all database appenders, such
as buffering and connection state.
> - o.a.l.l.core.appender.db.jdbc.JDBCAppender (and Manager, other classes) supports writing
events to a relational database using raw JDBC. It's injection-safe due to the use of prepared
statements. It can be configured with URL/username/password, JNDI data source, or a connection
factory method.
> - o.a.l.l.core.appender.db.jpa.JPAAppender (and Manager, other classes) supports writing
events to a relational database using the Java Persistence API version 2.0.
> - o.a.l.l.core.appender.db.nosql.NoSQLAppender (and Manager, other classes) supports
writing to an abstract concept of a NoSQL provider. Providers have been created for MongoDB
and Apache CouchDB. Creating a new provider is extremely easy.
> - Thorough unit tests for the abstract classes, the JDBC and JPA appenders, and the abstract
parts of the NoSQLAppender. Directly unit testing the MongoDB and CouchDB providers in a platform-independent
way is not easy and may not be possible.
> - Thorough documentation (both JavaDoc and Site documentation) for all of the appenders.
