Subject Bug 10479 Patch
Date Mon, 09 Dec 2002 17:00:08 GMT
Attached is a diff that addresses bug 10479 in the manner suggested by
Dims below.  Dims, would you please review the fix and commit it if you
agree with the content.  In addition to applying the patch, the
following files need to be removed.


This changes the default logging behavior of Axis by removing Log4J from
the distribution.  The new behavior in order of evaluation is:

1. Use the log implementation specified as a property
2. Use Log4J if available in the classpath
3. Use JDK 1.4 logging if available in the classpath
4. Use the commons SimpleLog which writes to Standard.err

So, if you want Log4J logging, simply put it in the classpath and place
your properties file in the appropriate place.  Otherwise you get JDK
1.4 or Simple depending on your JVM.

The only weird part about this fix is that I had to change
test.wsdl.extensibility.ExtensibilityQueryTestCase.  This testcase
relied on Log4J.  When I commented out the references to Log4J classes
all-tests ran fine.  Could the author of this test case please comment
on whether this is safe?

If you remove and the log4j.jar, the discovery code
will auto-magically use the
console logger. Try it out. This could be the default and users can add
their own
and drop-in the log4j.jar to use log4j. We need to make sure both
scenario's work. Code should be
already in both commons' logger to make this happen.
