      Description

      This issue raised after request to do so by Remko in StackOverflow question .

      I am trying to configure log4j2 so that I can access the loggers via JMX and change their log levels.

      However, when I hook everything up, none of the loggers show up in the JMX tree (or log4j-jmx-gui) as shown in the [log4j2 JMX docs](http://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/manual/jmx.html#ClientGUI). Only the log4j2 ContextSelector and StatusLogger in the JConsole attribute tree and the StatusLogger tab in the log4j-jmx-gui (stand-alone or as a plugin) show up. No LoggerContext elements.

      I've googled and not come up with anything! That probably means I'm missing something somewhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated by me and wall which I'm banging my head against

      I'm using Log4j2 beta9 with Java 1.6.0_45-b06 on win7. I have tried it on Java 7 and it results in the same behaviour.

      The log4j2 dependencies being used:

          log4j-api-2.0-beta9.jar
          log4j-core-2.0-beta9.jar
      

      My log4j2.xml:

          <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
          <Configuration  status="debug">
              <Appenders>
                  <Console name="log-test" target="SYSTEM_OUT">
                      <PatternLayout pattern="%d{DATE} %-5p LJX2 %c{1}: %m%n" />
                  </Console>
              </Appenders>
              <Loggers>
                  <Logger name="top.Log4J2TestApp" level="debug"  additivity="false">
                      <AppenderRef ref="log-test" />
                  </Logger>
                  <Root level="trace">
                      <AppenderRef ref="log-test" />
                  </Root>
              </Loggers>
          </Configuration>
      

      My test program:

          package top;   
          import org.apache.logging.log4j.LogManager;
          import org.apache.logging.log4j.Logger;
          
          public class Log4J2TestApp { 
              public static void main(String[] args) {
                  System.out.println("******** Started ZZZ ****************");
                  Logger log = LogManager.getLogger(Log4J2TestApp.class);
                  int cnt = 0;
                  while (true) {
                      log.warn("=========== Test message: {} ================", cnt++);
                      Thread.sleep(1000);
                  }
              }
          }
      

      The output of the test program looks like this:
