      Description

      Ever since upgrading to Velocity 1.6.2 I get a stack trace when starting up due to a missing macro library. The stack trace in particular makes for a very noisy log. I suggest we do not print a stacktrace for a missing macro library at startup.

      Here's my settings

      VelocityEngine ve = new VelocityEngine();

      ve.setProperty("resource.loader", "class");
      ve.setProperty("class.resource.loader.class", "org.apache.velocity.runtime.resource.loader.ClasspathResourceLoader");
      ve.setProperty("class.resource.loader.cache", "false");

      ve.setProperty("runtime.Log.invalid.references ", "false");
      ve.setProperty("resource.manager.logwhenfound", "false");
      ve.setProperty("runtime.log.logsystem.class", "org.apache.velocity.runtime.log.SimpleLog4JLogSystem");
      ve.setProperty("runtime.log.logsystem.log4j.category", "com.forio.Velocity");

      And here's the log report
