Cause: Approach for logging based on JCL/Log4J. Consequence: App did use its own log file based on Log4J. Fix: Migrate core logging service core to SLF4J Result: Now, the app uses an standarized approach for logging. JBoss logging service will be taken by SLF4J.

Description Marek Winkler 2013-05-10 05:26:05 EDT
Description of problem:

BPMS dashbuilder application uses non-standard log file location /tmp/dashboard-builder-jboss.log. This might cause issues when backing up application logs in production use; more importantly, the default log location should be intuitive for the user.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

BPMS 6.0.0.DR4

How reproducible:

Deploy dashbuilder.war application and look for its log file.
Actual results:

Log file is located at /tmp/dashboard-builder-jboss.log.

Expected results:

Log file should be located under EAP domain or profile directory (e.g. standalone/log/).
Comment 1 Lukáš Petrovický 2013-05-10 05:28:16 EDT
Even more so, the app should log to the same file as any other app - server.log. Is it even using jboss-logging?
Comment 2 David Gutierrez 2013-07-16 13:53:25 EDT
Log4J has been completely removed and SLF4J has been taken instead.
Logging service is now provided by JBoss.
