Jörg, thanks for your feedback. I know that it is just a wrapper. That's 
an advantage in my opinion. Because the resource adapter could then be 
used with any logging framework. The timestamp problem has also occurred 
to me. It can not be solved by using Log4J directly either. I don't mean 
the rar should go into the standard JCL distribution. It could be an 
add-on package.
