Issue with CustomLayout configuration in JBoss

Sumit Pattnaik Newbie

Hi,

 

I have added a CustomPatternLayout to format the logs messages. To use it in JBoss 4.2 I had modified the jboss-log4j.xml. I have changed the PatternLayout to CustomPatternLayout class.

Added the JAR (Which containts the Custom Layout class) in <JBoss_Home>/lib/endorsed directory. Looking at below logs I found that the logs are completely gone and JBoss is also not starting. However, if I tried to run this CustomPatternLayout class using JUnitTest then it works fine. Also from these logs it can be seen that the CustomLayout class is picked up by the JBoss Logging.

 

Note: The JBoss debug mode is set to true in Jboss-log4j.xml

    It seems it worked out for me on an application level by doing the following steps

    a. Adding Log4j.jar in lib folder of the web application

    b. Adding log4j.properties in classpath

    c. Adding web application level isolation.

     

    So I request to please confirm if the same can be done at server level where all application can use the same layout.
