Ok, digging deeper into the library I see LoggerPtr is an ObjPtr and not a true pointer.

Subject: RE: Forward Declaration

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think it will. In Test.hpp, 
the compiler doesn't know what type LoggerPtr is. Since you're referring to that 
type directly rather than by a pointer, the compiler needs to know the full 
details. It doesn't know that in reality it's a pointer type defined elsewhere. 
If for example, your code instead read:
class Test {
    static log4cxx::LoggerPtr* 
then the compiler wouldn't complain.

Subject: Forward  Declaration


I'm wondering if it is possible to use forward declaration  with log4cxx classes in a class
header file. I would like to exclude the  log4cxx headers files in my header files if possible
and include the log4cxx  header files in my cpp(source) files.

Should this work?

//  Test.hpp
namespace log4cxx {
class LoggerPtr;

class Test  {
    static log4cxx:LoggerPtr     _logger;



#include  <log4cxx/logger.h>

using namespace log4cxx;

LoggerPtr  Test::_logger(Logger::getRootLogger());

Test::Test() {

//  end
