Use own Log4j configuration
I'm launching TestRunner from the command line with some system properties. Among them, "soapui.log4j.config" to override logging configuration for SOAPUI.
E.g. testrunner.bat -Dsoapui.log4j.config="my_log4j.xml" ... -s MySuite project.xml
Since migration to SOAPUI 5.2, my configuration is not taken into account.
In SOAPUI 5.0, there was an output as follows:
Configuring log4j from [...\my_log4j.xml]
This output is expected as per initLog method in DefaultSoapUICore class:
protected void initLog()
if( !logIsInitialized )
String logFileName = System.getProperty( SoapUISystemProperties.SOAPUI_LOG4j_CONFIG_FILE, "soapui-log4j.xml" );
File log4jconfig = root == null ? new File( logFileName ) : new File( new File( getRoot() ), logFileName );
if( log4jconfig.exists() )
System.out.println( "Configuring log4j from [" + log4jconfig.getAbsolutePath() + "]" );
DOMConfigurator.configureAndWatch( log4jconfig.getAbsolutePath(), 5000 );
Any idea why such a regression?
I need this to work as I want to use JSONPath assertions.
