java: Post messages over HTTP using Java

Version 3.7 of AxoSyslog can directly post log messages to web services using the HTTP protocol. Error and status messages received from the HTTP server are forwarded to the internal logs of AxoSyslog. The current implementation has the following limitations:

Declaration:

   java(
        class-path("/syslog-ng/install_dir/lib/syslog-ng/java-modules/*.jar")
        class-name("org.syslog_ng.http.HTTPDestination")
    
        option("url", "http://<server-address>:<port-number>")
    
    );

Example: Sending log data to a web service

The following example defines an http destination.

   destination d_http {
        java(
            class-path("/syslog-ng/install_dir/lib/syslog-ng/java-modules/*.jar")
            class-name("org.syslog_ng.http.HTTPDestination")
    
            option("url", "http://192.168.1.1:80")
        );
    };
    
    log
        { source(s_file); destination(d_http); flags(flow-control); };
