Logging

The client uses SLF4J for logging useful notes, such as exception stack traces when a job handler fails execution. Using the SLF4J API, any SLF4J implementation can be plugged in. The following example uses Log4J 2.

Maven dependencies#

<dependency>  <groupId>org.apache.logging.log4j</groupId>  <artifactId>log4j-slf4j-impl</artifactId>  <version>2.8.1</version></dependency>
<dependency>  <groupId>org.apache.logging.log4j</groupId>  <artifactId>log4j-core</artifactId>  <version>2.8.1</version></dependency>

Configuration#

First, add a file called log4j2.xml to the classpath of your application.

Then, add the following content:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><Configuration status="WARN" strict="true"    xmlns="http://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.0/config"    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"    xsi:schemaLocation="http://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.0/config https://raw.githubusercontent.com/apache/logging-log4j2/log4j-2.8.1/log4j-core/src/main/resources/Log4j-config.xsd">  <Appenders>    <Console name="Console" target="SYSTEM_OUT">      <PatternLayout pattern="%d{HH:mm:ss.SSS} [%t] %-5level Java Client: %logger{36} - %msg%n"/>    </Console>  </Appenders>  <Loggers>    <Root level="info">      <AppenderRef ref="Console"/>    </Root>  </Loggers></Configuration>

This will log every log message to the console.
