Bug Priority:
Category 2
ACT Numbers:




The logback.xml file in both activiti-admin and activiti-app are incorrectly using a comma versus a period in the encoder pattern.

  • WEB-INF/classes/logback.xml
          <pattern>%d{hh:mm:ss,SSS} [%t] %-5p %c %X - %m%n</pattern>

As a result the interpretation of the timestamp is incorrect parsing SSS as timezone.

"d{pattern, timezone}" 

This is making the timestamp incorrect and confusing in logs.

Actual Behavior

  • If time was "Thu Aug 30 14:04:37 EDT" the parse pattern is printing out as ex. "06:04:37"

Expected Behavior

  • If time was "Thu Aug 30 14:04:37 EDT" the parse pattern should be printing out as ex. "14:04:37.593"


  • either use dot instead of comma
          <pattern>%d{hh:mm:ss.SSS} [%t] %-5p %c %X - %m%n</pattern>

or put quotes around pattern

      <pattern>%d{"hh:mm:ss,SSS"} [%t] %-5p %c %X - %m%n</pattern>
