Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1244) Make header and footer values customizable in JSONLayout
Date Wed, 06 Jan 2016 01:54:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1244?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15084529#comment-15084529

Remko Popma commented on LOG4J2-1244:

Took a quick look at the patch:
* Maybe we should pull PatternLayout.Serializer up to AbstractStringLayout.Serializer? Would
that potentially break client code? (It looks a bit strange for AbstractStringLayout to use
an interface defined in one of its subclasses.)
* AbstractStringLayout#getFooter and #getHeader should return super.getFooter/Header if the
serializer is {{null}}.
* All layouts extending AbstractLayout now need a Configuration object to be constructed;
unit testing is slightly easier if this is not required but I guess there is no way around
this :-)

> It will be helpful to provide a way to customize header and footer in JSONLayout in Log4j
> For instance user is writing a logging application which logs requests and responses
to/from a server to log files in JSON format. Now user also wants to log server specific information
in each log file but since it will be common for all request/response, it is not desired to
be logged with each log entry so user wants to add server specific common information at start
of the file. As header in JSON format or in this use case. This will be followed by each request
and response logged as a JSON array element. And at rollover this JSON array and main JSON
object  (which contains header and JSON array) should  be closed with help of footer.
> A typical file will be something like ...
> {code}
> {"Header":{"ServerName":"MyAppServer"},"LogEntries":[
> {"Message":"Request message1","RequestingAddress":"","TimeStamp":"2016-01-05_07-24-59"},
> {"Message":"Request message1","RequestingAddress":"","TimeStamp":"2016-01-05_07-24-59"},
> {"Message":"Request message1","RequestingAddress":"","TimeStamp":"2016-01-05_07-24-59"},
> {"LogEndMarker":"END"}
> ]}
> {code}
