      Description

      Using BasicContextSelector does not work when using Log4j in an OSGI application, see discussion on the mailing list: http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/logging-log4j-user/201810.mbox/%3cAAA02DBF-18FF-4F31-9F5A-BAF4DBDBD679@dslextreme.com%3e

       

      Basically, the problem is that core-class BasicContextSelector is being loaded by LoaderUtil class that is living in log4j-api which cannot access classes in log4j-core.

      This is the error that occurs:

      ERROR StatusLogger Unable to create custom ContextSelector. Falling back to default.
       java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.logging.log4j.core.selector.BasicContextSelector cannot be found by org.apache.logging.log4j.api_2.11.2.SNAPSHOT

      A fix for LOG4J2-920 was done with a similar issue in which a dependency from log4j-api to log4j-core was created in the manifest file.

       

      As discussed on the mailing list, I will file a pull request that allows BasicContextSelector to work in an OSGI setup and removes the unwanted dependency again.
