Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-2349) Accumulo should give some notification if there is no *_logger.xml file

Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-2349:

[~vickyuec]: Agreed that these changes are major and should not be done in older versions.
This ticket is marked for 1.7, though. If this ticket is about making loud complaints about
a missing file in 1.7, then I think these alternatives which have been suggested are a preferable
way to go.

Further, if we agree that these alternatives (specifically, dropping the *_logger.xml files)
are something we're going to do in a future version, then we need to keep that in mind in
"fixing" previous releases. We don't want to create churn by tolerating missing files in one
version, complaining very loudly about those missing files in the next bugfix version, and
then not using those files at all in the next version.

With that in mind, the correct solution for the current problem in previous releases seems
to me to be that we should not complain loudly. Rather, we should find ways to be more tolerant
of those missing files, without complaining to users and demanding they take action. Hence
[my suggestion to change the behavior to fall back on the file in those older

accumulo just happily carries on with no logs whatsoever. We should alter it to complain loudly
if it's missing them.
