14.5.4. Specify a Logging Profile in an Application

An application specifies the logging profile to use in its MANIFEST.MF file.

Prerequisites:

  1. You must know the name of the logging profile that has been setup on the server for this application to use. Ask your server administrator for the name of the profile to use.

Procedure 14.6. Add Logging Profile configuration to an Application

  • Edit MANIFEST.MF

    If your application does not have a MANIFEST.MF file: create one with the following content, replacing NAME with the required profile name.
    Manifest-Version: 1.0
    Logging-Profile: NAME
    If your application already has a MANIFEST.MF file: add the following line to it, replacing NAME with the required profile name.
    Logging-Profile: NAME

Note

If you are using Maven and the maven-war-plugin, you can put your MANIFEST.MF file in src/main/resources/META-INF/ and add the following configuration to your pom.xml file.
<plugin>
  <artifactId>maven-war-plugin</artifactId>
  <configuration>
    <archive>
      <manifestFile>src/main/resources/META-INF/MANIFEST.MF</manifestFile>  
    </archive>
  </configuration>
</plugin>
When the application is deployed it will use the configuration in the specified logging profile for its log messages.
