Rainy days and Java always get me down

I've Moved My Blog

It's currently located at http://www.urlinone.com/blog

I should say "I'm moving my blog." It's a pretty painful process.

Pebble has blown up on me, and it's been many months since I've been able to blog reliably. I've lost posts. And now I've got to figure out how to migrate my past blog posts from Pebble to my new destination without all the URLs changing, lest external links become 404 Not Founds.

Why does everything in the 21st century have to be a three-day project???

This is the single most difficult piece of information to find on all the web.

Lemme see, what did I Google for?

  • SocketAppender layout
  • chainsaw ConversionPattern
  • source line number log4j
  • chainsaw location line number
  • jakarta apache commons-logging log4j chainsaw layout please oh please show me my freaking line numbers

I'm not sure why this is the most elusive tidbit of information on the face of the earth, but I'm going to open the kimono and let you in on the secret...


Can I tell you how many variations on the ConversionPattern I tried? It's in the dozens. None of them worked.

log4j.appender.chainsaw.layout.ConversionPattern=%d{DATE} [%-5p] %c {%F:%L} - %m%n
log4j.appender.chainsaw.layout.ConversionPattern=%d{ABSOLUTE} %5p %c{1}:%L - %m%n
log4j.appender.chainsaw.layout.ConversionPattern=%d [%t] %-5p %c {%F:%L} - %m%n
log4j.appender.chainsaw.layout.ConversionPattern=%d [%t] (%F:%L) %-5p %c - %m%n

Pretty sick when you find out all you need is locationInfo=true.

This is why I'm JCranky.

socketappender doesn't use patternlayout, and if you are using the new version of Chainsaw (http://logging.apache.org/log4j/docs/chainsaw.html) with a log4j 1.2.8 socketappender, locationinfo=true won't work either in chainsaw for now. To get line numbers in Chainsaw, use a logfilepatternreceiver in Chainsaw and a FileAppender with the %L in the patternlayout.
