    Encoding used when handler encoding is undefined

    Francis Hutchinson Newbie

      Hi,

       

      I'm using JBoss EAP 6.2.0. The encoding for the file log handler is not defined, which raises the question, what encoding is being used to write to the file?

       

      Running the following from CLI:

      ...subsystem=logging/periodic-rotating-file-handler=FILE:read-resource
      

      results in:

      ..
      "encoding" => undefined,
      ..
      

       

      I would like to know the answer to this question because I would like to explicitly set the encoding to UTF-8. I would like to know whether downstream tooling which parses the logs will observe a change from the current unknown encoding to UTF-8.
