    Description

      Not sure if this is the right place for general feedback but here goes:

      I wanted to learn to use loggers, googling told me log4j2 was popular so I had a go with it. I feel the documentation is extremely lacking / poorly organized for a first timer - I've used java for a few years but never loggers.

      One problem that completely stopped me getting anywhere - I cannot get log4j2 to access the configuration file. I can access the classpath and properties file myself fine but log4j refuses to find it. I'm using the latest intellij idea with maven. Here is some more info: http://pastebin.com/7Nix7zME

      I think for now I will abandon trying to use log4j, it doesn't feel logger-newbie friendly
