Pull Requests on Github

By sending a pull request you grant the Apache Software Foundation sufficient rights to use and release the submitted work under the Apache license. You grant the same rights (copyright license, patent license, etc.) to the Apache Software Foundation as if you have signed a Contributor License Agreement. For contributions that are judged to be non-trivial, you will be asked to actually signing a Contributor License Agreement.

Usage

Users should refer to Maven, Ivy, Gradle, and SBT Artifacts on the Log4j web site for instructions on how to include Log4j into their project using their chosen build tool.

Basic usage of the Logger API:

package com.example;

import org.apache.logging.log4j.Logger;
import org.apache.logging.log4j.LogManager;

public class Example {
    private static final Logger LOGGER = LogManager.getLogger();

    public static void main(String... args) {
        String thing = args.length > 0 ? args[0] : "world";
        LOGGER.info("Hello, {}!", thing);
        LOGGER.debug("Got calculated value only if debug enabled: {}", () -> doSomeCalculation());
    }

    private static Object doSomeCalculation() {
        // do some complicated calculation
    }
}

And an example log4j2.xml configuration file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Configuration>
  <Appenders>
    <Console name="Console" target="SYSTEM_OUT">
      <PatternLayout pattern="%d{HH:mm:ss.SSS} [%t] %-5level %logger{36} - %msg%n"/>
    </Console>
  </Appenders>
  <Loggers>
    <Logger name="com.example" level="INFO"/>
    <Root level="error">
      <AppenderRef ref="Console"/>
    </Root>
  </Loggers>
</Configuration>

Documentation

The Log4j 2 User's Guide is available here or as a downloadable PDF.

Requirements

Log4j 2.4 and greater requires Java 7, versions 2.0-alpha1 to 2.3 required Java 6. Some features require optional dependencies; the documentation for these features specifies the dependencies.
