I just read a great discussion on how Log4j 2 is awesome!
Being a developer, this is great news! And it is coming up to be a worthy successor of Log4j and seems to provides significant improvements too!
The improvements include -
- API Separation
- Improved Performance
- Support for multiple APIs
- Automatic Reloading of Configurations
- Advanced Filtering
- Plugin Architecture
- Property Support
Many of these follow the positives of LogBack (which has been touted as a successor to Log4j).
