While Searching Something Else

with one comment

While searching for log4j Chainsaw updates re: VFS support, I came across a post on Oliver’s blog (initial author of Chainsaw) that related to an issue I came across a few years ago. My post to the log4j-users mailing list was related to concerns about log4j socket appenders potentially deadlocking the application server – in this case, WebLogic 8.1. A few months later Oliver encountered the problem – which is what I stumbled upon today. So the point of this post? Don’t use socket appenders on a production system – although I thoroughly advocate their use on dev/qa environments. The other point, it’s a small world after all.
