    Wildfly-8 Custom formatter documentation and example?

    Todd Sandor Newbie

      Hi  I am looking for some documentation and an example use/implementation of the new Wildfly 8 custom formatter,

      Can someone please point me in the right direction? Would like to see the logging configuration and the source

      code for a simple custom formatter (or details on what needs to be implemented/extended/etc.).


      What I want to do is to "extend" the existing formatter and add new formatter options (e.g. %h for "host") and

      modify existing formats.


      Need to migrate/port a EAP 5 log4j custom "layout" class to use custom formatter...(JBoss logging)

      In EAP 5 log4j, did this by specifying the "class=" within the "layout" of an appender.


         <appender name="FILE" class="com.myorg.MySpecialAppender">


            <layout class="com.myorg.logging.MyPatternLayout">

              <param name="ConversionPattern" value="%d{yyyy.MM.dd HH:mm:ss} %h %c %m%n"/>




      The com.myorg.logging.MyPatternLayout would extend "PatternLayout"..


      public class MyPatternLayout extends PatternLayout
