    Description

      During upgrading log4j2 in grails 2.5.4 application, I removed all log4j 1.2.17 dependencies and added following dependencies pertaining to v2.17.1:

      • log4j-api
      • log4j-core
      • log4j-1.2-api
      • log4j-slf4j-impl

       

      Here's my log4j2.properties file present under conf directory:

      rootLogger.level = INFO
      rootLogger.additivity = false
      rootLogger.appenderRefs = stdout
      rootLogger.appenderRef.stdout.ref = STDOUT
      
      appender.console.type = Console
      appender.console.name = STDOUT
      appender.console.layout.type = PatternLayout
      appender.console.layout.pattern = %m%n
       

       

      I noticed that internal framework logs were also appearing and on further debugging I found that the additivity property for root logger was set to true (even when it is set to false in properties file). 

       

      I've posted a question with further details on stackoverflow.
