Subject RE: [Logging] [VOTE] Commons Logging 1.0 Release
Date Wed, 30 Jan 2002 12:21:31 GMT
Hi Geir,

Knowing both code bases I would say that Avalon is better in 1) but
as nothing in 2).

For my logging wrapper I am using Avalon stuff for the wrappers and
Velocity stuff as a base for detection and configuration... and for
the Primordial Logger, which no one is talking about but that I find
a great idea.

Have fun,
Paulo Gaspar
