Which contained:

Ages ago (a year or two?) we decided that we wanted to separate out logging configuration
from environment.xml - is this still desired? The reason is that I am currently documenting
this and want to finalize the implementation prior to doccing it.

The idea was to do something like


and SAR-INF/logging.xml contains all the configuration for logging. I think it is just a case
of no one getting around to doing it. This was just after Giacomo wrote the excalibur-logger
package and we wanted to harmonize between Cocoon and Phoenix in this aspect.

However I now have another motivation to do this. Several people have asked for support for
log4j or native JDK1.4 logging configuration formats. So if we went the above way we could
separate out logging we could search for configurations in the following order;

SAR-INF/environment.xml (for backwards compatability)
SAR-INF/logging.xml (excalibur logger)
SAR-INF/log4j.xml (log4j xml format)
SAR-INF/log4j.properties (log4j properties format)
SAR-INF/log.properties (JDK1.4 format)

That way people who want to use Log4j config files can do it easily.

It has been suggested that we should extract logging definition from environment.xml and place
it in a new file 
This has been suggested because it mimics behaviour in other containers and logging can not
really be considered to be part of the "environment" of an application.
