What is this?

Quite simply, "log4j-properties-converter" converts the Log4J Properties file format to the corresponding Log4J XML format.

How do I run it?

You have a couple of options when it comes to converting your properties files...

The really easy way

By far the easiest way to is to use the Log4J to Properties web application at http://log4jprops2xml.royals.net.au. Paste your config into this web app, and it gives you back your file in XML format. Too easy!

The less easy way

You can also download the command-line interface version of the tool. This is useful if you don't trust the website version, or you have a lot of files to convert and you want to script it up. The binary dist is Java and expects that you have a JRE installed already.

Get the binary (Windows/Linux) distribution from the "Releases" page on Github, or this direct link will download it for you. https://github.com/jroyals/log4j-properties-converter/releases/download/log4j-converter-1.1/log4j-properties-converter-cli-1.1-distribution.zip

In order to run log4j-converter command-line interface you need

  • Java version 1.6 or better
  • Java must be on the path, or JAVA_HOME environment variable must be set

Once you have downloaded the distribution, unzip it. Then, run...

log4j-convert -f <path to log4j.properties>

When it has finished, the .properties file will stil be there but it will be joned by an equivalent XML file.
