    Logback JBoss 7

    klind Newbie

      I am trying to use logback with JBoss 7

       

      I want to have the logback.xml file in standalone/configuration/logback.xml

       

      I use this in the standalone.bat :

      Set LOGBACK_CONF_FILE=-Dlogback.configurationFile=../standalone/configuration/logback.xml
      
      "%JAVA%" %JAVA_OPTS% ^
       "-Dorg.jboss.boot.log.file=%JBOSS_LOG_DIR%\boot.log" ^
       "-Dlogging.configuration=file:%JBOSS_CONFIG_DIR%/logging.properties" ^
       %LOGBACK_CONF_FILE% ^
          -jar "%JBOSS_HOME%\jboss-modules.jar" ^
          -mp "%JBOSS_MODULEPATH%" ^
          -jaxpmodule "javax.xml.jaxp-provider" ^
           org.jboss.as.standalone ^
          -Djboss.home.dir="%JBOSS_HOME%" ^
           %*
      
      

       

      Here is part of the logback.xml

       

       

      <appender name="FILE" class="ch.qos.logback.core.rolling.RollingFileAppender">
              <file>/log/jsi.log</file>
      
      

       

      But the jsi.log file is not created.. seems like the logback.xml is not read.

       

      Anyone have a setup like that working. ?

          I don't think a relative path like that will work. Also it would need to be passed in at the end after -Djboss.home.dir.

           

          Are you using any special appenders? If not you could just use the logging subsystem.

            There must be people using logback with JBoss 7

              Using logback in your application shouldn't be an issue. I have to admit I'm not all that familiar with logback, so forgive me if these are obvious questions.

               

              Are you providing a logback JAR in your deployment?

               

              Does logback automatically find configuration files when activated? Or in other words is there something you need to do to activate it?

               

              You're standalone.bat (while I do encourage you not to change it) should look more like

              set LOGBACK_CONF_FILE=-Dlogback.configurationFile=%JBOSS_CONFIG_DIR%\logback.xml 
              
              "%JAVA%" %JAVA_OPTS% ^
               "-Dorg.jboss.boot.log.file=%JBOSS_LOG_DIR%\boot.log" ^
               "-Dlogging.configuration=file:%JBOSS_CONFIG_DIR%/logging.properties" ^
                  -jar "%JBOSS_HOME%\jboss-modules.jar" ^
                  -mp "%JBOSS_MODULEPATH%" ^
                  -jaxpmodule "javax.xml.jaxp-provider" ^
                   org.jboss.as.standalone ^
                  -Djboss.home.dir="%JBOSS_HOME%" ^
                  %LOGBACK_CONF_FILE% ^
                   %*
              

               

               

              If logback spits out debug information you might want to try enabling debug to see what it's saying.

                I provide the

                 

                logback-classic-1.0.9.jar

                logback-core-1.0.9.jar

                slf4j-api-1.7.2.jar

                 

                in my app.

                 

                This is my jboss-deployment-structure.xml

                 

                <jboss-deployment-structure xmlns="urn:jboss:deployment-structure:1.0">
                          <ear-subdeployments-isolated>false</ear-subdeployments-isolated>

                                    <exclusions>
                                              <!-- Exclude hibernate as we use the latest hibenate that we provide. see JSI/pom.xml -->
                                              <module name="org.hibernate" />
                                              <module name="org.hibernate.validator" />

                </jboss-deployment-structure>
                
                

                 

                Off cause I do not want to provide the logback.xml file, as I should be able to edit it at runtime.

                 

                logback will try to find configuration files.   From the logback doc...

                 

                http://logback.qos.ch/manual/configuration.html

                 

                 

                Let us begin by discussing the initialization steps that logback follows to try to configure itself:
                Logback tries to find a file called logback.groovy in the classpath.
                If no such file is found, logback tries to find a file called logback-test.xml in the classpath.
                If no such file is found, it checks for the file logback.xml in the classpath..
                If neither file is found, logback configures itself automatically using the BasicConfigurator which will cause logging output to be directed to the console.
                
                
                ....
                ....
                
                Specifying the location of the default configuration file as a system property
                You may specify the location of the default configuration file with a system property named"logback.configurationFile". The value of this property can be a URL, a resource on the class path or a path to a file external to the application.
                java -Dlogback.configurationFile=/path/to/config.xml chapters.configuration.MyApp1
                
                
                
                

                 

                I also moved the %LOGBACK_CONF_FILE%

                 

                 

                "%JAVA%" %JAVA_OPTS% ^
                 "-Dorg.jboss.boot.log.file=%JBOSS_LOG_DIR%\boot.log" ^
                 "-Dlogging.configuration=file:%JBOSS_CONFIG_DIR%/logging.properties" ^

                  But nothing is happening..

                   

                  I am wondering if slf4j is picking up some other implementation.. but I excluded slf4j-jboss-logmanager

                      It looks like you need to add a dependency to the org.slf4j to your ch.qos.logback module.xml.

                        I added slf4j as a module.

                         

                        2013-03-14_132235.png

                         

                        and added dependency in logback module..

                         

                         

                        <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

                        </module>
                        

                         

                        And no longer provide logback or slf4j in the app.

                         

                         

                        Added sub deployment... dont know if that is neccesary though...

                            That slot looks wrong. It should be main or empty really.

                                Ah, I should have noticed the version difference :-)

                                 

                                It might need a circular dependency. Try adding the ch.qos.logback to your slf4j module.

                                  I wouldn't  think so, as slf4j should just look for a binding implementation in the class path.. and here find logback.

                                  If I debug my code and break on a log.debug line, I can see the the instance of log, is a org.slf4j.helpers.NOPLogger(NOP), which is used when no binding can be found on the class path..

                                   

                                  But i will try it

                                    But I have xml-apis-2.9.1.jar in my ear/lib, but I guess the module classloader cannot see that.

                                     

                                    So do I now have to create modules for all the dependencies logback has ??
