Is log4j 1.x supported in JBoss EAP? It has been discontinued by Apache.

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • The Apache page says that log4j 1.x is not supported anymore. Is this a problem?
  • Our security team has flagged log4j v1.x as a vulnerability since it has not been maintained by Apache since 2016. Unfortunately instances of log4j v1.x are in JBoss install directories.
