[jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1873) Implement UTF-8 encoding that doesn't use CharsetEncoder

JIRA jira@apache.org

Matt Sicker commented on LOG4J2-1873:
-------------------------------------

I'd be interested in seeing this feature myself. The standard UTF-8 CharsetEncoder is ridiculous in this regard.

> CharsetEncoder accepts only CharBuffers, and for the sake of being entirely garbage-free we don't want to use CharBuffer.wrap(stringBuilder), when encoding an event.
> That forces us to make additional data copy from StringBuilder to a thread-local CharBuffer.
> This could be avoided by implementing UTF-8 encoding logic in log4j-core itself, and not using CharsetEncoder.
> This issue is specifically about UTF-8 because it is used predominantly and it's relatively easy to implement. There are also likely some open-source Apache 2-compatible implementations in Java out there already that we could just copy and adapt.
