      Description

      My goal is to send log messages via a JMS Queue unless the message broker is down, when I simple want send the logs to the Console.

      I configured a failover appender for this purpose:
      :
      <appenders>

      ...

      <JMSQueue name="LiffLog4j2Queue" queueBindingName="Log4j2Queue" factoryBindingName="QueueConnectionFactory"/>
      <Failover name="FailoverLiffLog4j2Queue" primary="LiffLog4j2Queue" suppressExceptions="false">
      <Failovers>
      <appender-ref ref="Console"/>
      </Failovers>
      </Failover>
      </appenders>
      <loggers>
      <root level="debug">
      <appender-ref ref="FailoverLiffLog4j2Queue"/>
      </root>

      All works as expected when the message broker is up.

      When I shut down the message broker while running my application, instead of the log message I get this message to my console :
      2012-11-21 21:51:15,726 ERROR Could not publish message via JMS JMSQueue:QueueConnectionFactory.Log4j2Queue

      Using a failover appender I expected to get the log messages on the console.

      Also tried to start my application without ever starting message broker. In this case it correctly fails to connect :

      BUT shortly afterwards my application exits with :

      2012-11-21 22:10:10,238 ERROR Unable to locate primary Appender LiffLog4j2Queue

      As it can not find primary appender (JMSQueue) it can not start the failover appender either.
