      Description

      I'm trying to integrate Log4j2 in Android but getting the following error message:

      java.lang.ClassCastException: org.apache.logging.log4j.simple.SimpleLoggerContext cannot be cast to org.apache.logging.log4j.core.LoggerContext

      Code:

      import org.apache.logging.log4j.Level;
      import org.apache.logging.log4j.LogManager;
      import org.apache.logging.log4j.core.Logger;
      import org.apache.logging.log4j.core.LoggerContext;
      import org.apache.logging.log4j.core.appender.SyslogAppender;
      
        LoggerContext context = (LoggerContext) LogManager.getContext();
        Logger root = context.getLogger("MainActivity");
        SyslogAppender appender = obtainAppender();
      
        if (!appender.isStarted()) 
          appender.start();
      
        root.addAppender(appender);
        root.setAdditive(false);
        root.setLevel(Level.DEBUG);
        root.debug("This is a test message");
