Aspose Slides for java latest build problem with log4j

Hey guys!

I have recently installed the Aspose.Slides 2.5.0 build, arriving with log4j-1.2.16.jar.
This is not new, however, in this version you have added a formatting XML file that bluntly overrides our own formatting settings and our only solution (for production installation) was to remove this XML from your jar.
For us this is not an acceptable solution to tamper with a 3rd party code. And I also do not understand why you need to add the formatting XML to the jar itself.
I am talking about log4j.xml

Can you please remove this from next build?


Hi Sarah,

I have requested our development team to share their views on the dependency issue of Aspose.Slides for Java on log4j-1.2.16.jar. An issue with ID 28207 has been created in our issue tracking system to further investigate and resolve this issue. We will share the further information with you once it is shared by our development team.

Thanks and Regards,


Still waiting for some response here…


Hi Sarah,

I have checked from our development team and like to share that in the current build (Aspose.Slides for Java 2.5.0), we have remove log4j.xml from final jar. You may please verify the issue on your end as well.

Thanks and Regards,

I can’t confirm that log4j.xml is not included in the 2.5.0 release of Aspose-Slides for Java. Could you re-check? You probably have to do another release, don’t you?

Same Here.

log4j.xml is still in the build.

Hi Chang Shin,

Thanks for inquiring Aspose.Slides.

I hope you are using Aspose.Slides for Java 7.1.1 on your end. Can you please share the details of the issue along with sample code and exception message. In my opinion, there is no dependency on log4j-1.2.16 in newer product versions.

Many Thanks,
