#239 Put log files in better location (maven plugin)

Anders Hammar

When executing soapUI through the Maven plugin, the log files (soapui.log and soapui-errors.log) are put in the directory from where executed. When using Maven, that's not the expected behavior as everything produced should go in the configured build directory (most often 'target'). Could that be implemented for soapUI maven plugin as well? I believe it would be great to have the location configurable as well (with the default value of '${project.build.directory/soapui-logs' or maybe the directory configured as outputFolder).

    There is an almost complete solution for doing this with version 3.5.1 (probably works with earlier versions too): For putting the files 'soapui.log' and 'soapui-errors.log' to the directory specified in the feature request details, configure the maven plugin in your POM as followed:

    Unfortunately a third log file called 'groovy-global.log' is still put in the current working directory. This could be easily fixed by changing the definition of the GLOBAL_GROOVY_LOG appender in com/eviware/soapui/resources/conf/log4j.xml:

    Change line 56:
    Old: <param name="File" value="global-groovy.log"/>
    New: <param name="File" value="${soapui.logroot}global-groovy.log"/>

    Can anyone please commit this change to the repository?

    The thing with Maven is that it is driven by conventions. Defaults should be good and follow conventions. Anything produced by Maven should be put below ${project.build.directory} by default, I shouldn't have to configure this.
    So the soapui.logroot property should be configured appropriately by default by the soapui plugin IMO.

    Hi Mattias,

    thanks for this, the change has been made to the config file and should be in the 3.6.2-SNAPSHOT versions of the maven plugins


  • Hi Ole,
    unfortunately it seems that the change vanished again from the 4.0.0 version.
    Any chance that this fix will be reintroduced again?
    (and +1 for afloom's remark. i think this should be configurable as it is but it should not have to be configured)
    Regards, Peter
