The error message is pretty informative. DBAppender cannot function if
the JDBC driver does not support getGeneratedKeys method *and* without
a specific SQL dialect. As it appears that H2 does not support the
getGeneratedKeys method, an H2-specific dialect is required which at
present time logback does not have. Writing a dialect is equivalent to
implementing the getSelectInsertId() method in the SQLDialect
interface. There are a whole bunch of examples under the
You need to learn how H2 allows you find out the id for last inserted
row and have the dialect return the corresponding SQL statement.
Of course you also need to create the database schema correctly. For
logback-classic, see the examples under
For some reason the sql for creating the database schema for HSQL is
missing which is quite strange since logback uses HSQL for unit
testing DBAppender. I'll add the missing HSQL-related files shortly.
I am mentioning HSQL because Thomas Mueller is the main author of both
H2 and HSQL . Thus, the HSQL dialect and database schema should be
particularly useful starting point for H2.
