Subject Avalon Logging Toolkit (fwd)
Date Sat, 02 Feb 2002 08:14:06 GMT

A post to the Log4J list. What's the answer? I didn't see a FAQ on the
Avalon page with:

'Why not just use Log4J?'


I imagine the rip-off comment is a bit too strong. All Logging APIs seem
to steal from syslogd(?) which I'm sure has influence from other logging
systems back in prehistory. The first Java code I did for myself out of
work was a Debugging structure that in basic principle is the same, (but
simpler and crapper).

However, as someone who now uses Log4J as much as possible, and also as
someone whose eyes have been opened to the potential in Avalon, what is
the advantage to LogKit?

Subject: Avalon Logging Toolkit

Can anyone explain why this toolkit exists?

Seems like a straight rip-off from log4j?
