    Logback we will use mostly with Ktor, this dependency is not required, but it is nice to see logs of requests + it will get rid of some annoying warnings while running the project

    This is a GitHub link to my demo app. It’s simple Spring Boot web app used to debugging various stuff. There are many ways to configure JSON logging in Spring Boot. I decided to use Logback because it is easy to configure and one of the most widely used logging library in the Java Community. To enable JSON logging we need to add below dependencies.

    Logback(https://logback.qos.ch/) is another non-commercial Java logging framework. It labels itself as a successor to the previously discussed Log4j framework.

    > Then apache decides to put new people on log4j, do a backward incompatible v2 design that nevertheless is worse than slf4j. Why?

    slf4j itself isn't a logging framework. It's a facade to logging frameworks.

    Simple Logging Facade for Java ( https://www.slf4j.org )

    It needs a logging framework behind it - log4j, log4j2, logback, commons, JUL.

    The question is "why do log4j2?"

    Logback went from the log4j1.x path ( https://logback.qos.ch )

    Log4j2 has a lot of features that weren't present when the project started ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Log4j#Apache_Log4j_2 ).

    There is a licensing difference between Logback (LGPL) and Log4jx (Apache Commons).

  • E2E-Testing in CI Environment With Testcontainers

    Also, I'd like you to pay attention to the log consumer. You see, when the E2E scenario fails, it's not always obvious why. Sometimes to understand the source of the problem you have to dig into containers' logs. Thankfully the log consumer allows us to forward a container's logs to any SLF4J logger instance. In this project, containers' logs are forwarded to regular text files (you can find the Logback configuration in the repository). Though it's much better to transfer logs to external logging facility (e.g. Kibana).

  • How to Check if a Java Project Depends on A Vulnerable Version of Log4j
    8 projects | dev.to | 20 Dec 2021
    This shows that the MariaDB JDBC driver uses Logback as a logging framework. Although Logback is not affected by Log4Shell, it has a related vulnerability (of much lesser severity, no need to panic) fixed in version 1.2.8 and 1.3.0-alpha11. I checked the version used by the connector and found that it used 1.3.0-alpha10. Even though Logback is included as a test dependency in the MariaDB driver, I sent a pull request on GitHub to update it. I encourage you to do the same in any open-source project you find and that includes a vulnerable dependency.
