      Description

      When using the JUL log manager, setting the java.locale.providers property to "HOST" causes log4j2 to crash when you next log something.

      import java.util.logging.Level;
      import java.util.logging.Logger;
      
      public class LocalePropertyTest {
      
          /**
           * @param args the command line arguments
           */
          public static void main(String[] args) {
              System.setProperty("java.locale.providers", "HOST,JRE,SPI");
              System.setProperty("java.util.logging.manager", "org.apache.logging.log4j.jul.LogManager");
              Logger.getLogger(LocalePropertyTest.class.getName()).log(Level.WARNING, "this is a test");
          }
      }
      

      Used the following libraries:

      log4j-jul-2.9.1.jar
      log4j-core-2.9.1.jar
      log4j-api-2.9.1.jar

      The error is very long. Here are the first few lines:
