Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-235) Dependency on tools.jar and jconsole
Date Fri, 03 May 2013 05:56:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-235?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13648209#comment-13648209

Remko Popma commented on LOG4J2-235:
------------------------------------

Perhaps my Maven inexperience is getting in the way here. 
Let me try to understand. 
We need jconsole to build log4j, but once these jars have been created, anyone can build their
project with just the log4j jars, no? Or does maven now impose a dependency on jconsole on
anyone who has a project that uses log4j? And would making this dependency "optional" remove
that problem for projects that use log4j?

>          Components: Core
>    Affects Versions: 2.0-beta5

> Hello,
> when switching from 2.0-beta4 to 2.0-beta5 I something irritating that in the dependency
hierarchy of my project. For log4j2-core there were transitive dependencies on tools.jar and
jsconsole which had not been there.
> This looks like a bug and an as a consequence requires a JDK instead of  a JRE (at least
due to the tools.jar which does not exist in Java 1.6 JRE). If these dependencies are really
required, it should be clearly stated.
