Subject Re: log4j should be pluggable

I was under the impression that log4j wasn't pluggable, but I don't know
the details of log4j.  That's certainly something to look into.  Thanks.

This discussion must have taken place just before you joined.  In essence,
the reasoning was:

   (1) We need a pluggable logging facility.  That much is agreed.

   (2) Log4j already has a pluggable ability to add in your own
   "appenders".  Designed.  Tested.  Documented.  Supported.  People (like
   MacroMedia) have used this successfully to direct output to their own
   logging facility.

   (3) If we were to write our own wrapper for logging, would it be better
   designed, tested, documented, or supported than the facility already in
