Add Log4j2 in a Spring Boot Application

Adding Log4j2 in a Spring Boot application can be done in two steps. For Maven, in pom.xml, exclude Spring Boot’s default logging:

org.springframework.boot   spring-boot-starter                  org.springframework.boot         spring-boot-starter-logging

Further, add Log4j2 dependency:

org.springframework.boot   spring-boot-starter-log4j2
