             Summary: Level.valueOf() converts level strings to uppercase
                 Key: LOG4J2-2005
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-2005
             Project: Log4j 2
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 2.8.2
            Reporter: Paul Burrowes


When using custom levels that are not all uppercase the serialized level 
strings are not deserializable back into levels because Level.valueOf() assumes 
all levels will be uppercase.
https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/manual/customloglevels.html says that 
levels are case sensitive and the convention is to use uppercase. Having the 
convention mandatory in code breaks all cases where the level name has already 
been standardised as mixed case.

The fix is simple, Level.valueOf() should not convert levelName to uppercase.
