Affects Version/s: 2.9.0
Fix Version/s: None
I have pushed a very simple repro here:
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create two configuration files, in my case I use a "default" embedded configuration on the classpath, and a second configuration on disk for overrides (this configuration uses monitorInterval=30).
2. Configurator.initialize(null, classLoader, ImmutableList.of(defaultUri, diskUri), null)
3. On initial startup, the two configurations are merged perfectly, everything works as expected.
4. Modify the on disk (override) configuration while the application is running, the failure is most apparent if I update a logger to reference an appender only defined in the "default" configuration. Reconfiguration executes but only using the file on disk, as though the first configuration has disappeared.
This is a regression from 2.8.2, so I have rolled back to that version. Unfortunately 2.8.2 is affected by
LOG4J2-1912 and complains with misleading warning messages so I've had to update the status logger to error level from info.
