Earlier eclipse rcp workspace is referring to the target having log4j1.x version. Below are the reference links.

eclipse latest p2 repository:(does not have the log4j)
ref1:https://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/updates/4.17-I-builds/I20200817-0920/plugins/

old p2 repo with log4j 1x version?
ref2:https://download.eclipse.org/oomph/archive/reports/download.eclipse.org/releases/2020-06/http___download.eclipse.org_releases_2020-06_202006171000/org.apache.log4j_1.2.15.v201012070815.html

From which p2 repository , we can find the log4j2 version jars (log4j2xapi, log4j2xcore).

Or is there any way to build jars and update corporate p2 repo instead of eclipse p2 repo

thanks

Have a look at the Orbit Project, it provides repositories of bundled versions of third party libraries that are approved for use in one or more Eclipse projects. These bundles are also used when the Eclipse Platform is build.

https://download.eclipse.org/tools/orbit/downloads/

Also note that the first link you provide links to the download provided by the Eclipse Project, while the second is an report on the simultaneous release. For repositories of the full releases look at https://download.eclipse.org/releases/ (this includes milestones for the to be released 4.17 version)

hi rolf ,
thanks for the quick help.
https://download.eclipse.org/tools/orbit/downloads/ latest build R20200529191137 has very old version of log4j which 1.2.15, looking for log4j 2x version.
Even the releases has the same problem, not sure why eclipse not upgrading the log4j.

Apparently there is no single Eclipse project that requires a the newer log4j API. If you like to use this API in your own product, you will have to wrap jar it into a bundle yourself.

The log4j is also released as maven bundle. I know there is tooling that more or less automatically can use the maven bundles and wrap them into an Eclipse bundle, but I don't have any pointers for you know.
