Autotest waits infinitely if logs are not properly configured

Reported by Sébastien Cesbron | November 7th, 2011 @ 11:16 AM | in 1.2.5 (closed)

Framework version: 1.2.3 and 1.2.4RC2
Platform you're using: ubuntu 11.10 64 bits, java oracle 1.6.0_26

Reproduction steps:

Change the application.conf, add the line


Do not create the file "log4j-dev.properties"

run the command

play auto-test

this commands nevers returns the last log line is

INFO: Listening for HTTP on port 9000 (Waiting a first request to start) ...


It seems that as the auto-test read logs to know if the application is started, if the logs are not correctly configured auto-test does not works and does not say why.

<h2>Play framework</h2>

Play makes it easier to build Web applications with Java. It is a clean alternative to bloated Enterprise Java stacks. It focuses on developer productivity and targets RESTful architectures. Learn more on the <a href="http://www.playframework.org">http://www.playframework.org</a> website.<br><br>

<h2>Reporting Security Vulnerabilities</h2> Since all bug reports are public, please report any security vulnerability directly to <em>guillaume dot bort at gmail dot com</em>.<br><br>

<h2>Creating a bug report</h2> Bug reports are incredibly helpful, so take time to report bugs and request features in our ticket tracker. We’re always grateful for patches to Play’s code. Indeed, bug reports with attached patches will get fixed far quickly than those without any.<br><br>

Don't have too much expectations. Unless the bug is really a serious "everything is broken" thing, you're creating a ticket to start a discussion. Having a patch (or a branch on Github we can pull from) is better, but then again we'll only pull high quality branches that make sense to be in the core of Play.
