      Description

      I just upgraded from beta9 to rc2 and my command line applications now fail on startup.

      I am passing -Dlog4j.configurationFile=conf/log4j2.xml

      The documentation does not state that relative paths are no longer supported but the error indicates that only absolute paths can now be used.
