Java Question

Migrating from log4j to log4j2 - properties file configuration

I have a java application which is using log4j configured as below.


log4j.properties


log4j.rootLogger=INFO, R
log4j.appender.R = org.apache.log4j.DailyRollingFileAppender
log4j.appender.R.File = /trace.log
log4j.appender.R.Append = true
log4j.appender.R.DatePattern = '.'yyyy-MM-dd
log4j.appender.R.layout = org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.R.layout.ConversionPattern = %d{HH:mm:ss} %c{1} [%p] %m%n


I would like to migrate to log4j2 with the same configuration as above. Haven't found anything related to log4j2 properties configuration file as this support recently included.

Please can anyone help me out how would be my log4j2.properties file with the same configuration above ?

Answer
rootLogger.level = INFO
property.filename = trace.log
appenders = R, console

appender.console.type = Console
appender.console.name = STDOUT
appender.console.layout.type = PatternLayout
appender.console.layout.pattern = %d %5p [%t] (%F:%L) - %m%n

appender.R.type = RollingFile
appender.R.name = File
appender.R.fileName = ${filename}
appender.R.filePattern = ${filename}.%d{yyyy-MM-dd}
appender.R.layout.type = PatternLayout
appender.R.layout.pattern = %d{yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss} %c{1} [%p] %m%n
appender.R.policies.type = Policies
appender.R.policies.time.type = TimeBasedTriggeringPolicy
appender.R.policies.time.interval = 1

rootLogger.appenderRefs = R, console

rootLogger.appenderRef.console.ref = STDOUT
rootLogger.appenderRef.R.ref = File
