5 EASIEST STEPS to Integrate Log4j2 with Spring Boot including JDBCAppender

By default, Spring Boot uses logback, but you can easily integrate log4j2 with Spring Boot by removing the Starter logging library and adding the Spring Boot log4j2 library. I have created a youtube video including adding JDBC Appender. The video has 5 Steps:

#1 Setup Log4j2

#2 Setup Basic properties & Log4j2.xml Configuration file

#3 Log4j2 Setup for Spring Profile

#4 Add JDBCAppender

#5 Add Custom columns

Hope it helps if you are looking to integrate log4j2 in Spring Boot.
