Last updated on OCTOBER 19, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle GlassFish Server - Version 2.1.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When using GlassFish Server 2.1.x with the newest Java version

the logs changed format on startup to something like the following:

After the GlassFish completely startup, no more logging will end up on the server.log and logging stops.


This change when the Java JDK version is update to JDK 6 update 51 (from JDK 6 update 45).
Similar issue when when GlassFish using JDK 5 is updated to latest JDK 5 update 51.
For JDK 7, this issue is also seen when JDK 7 update 25 is used with GlassFish 2.1.x.
