Subject [jira] Created: (CLI-128) Remove Commons-logging from CLI's pom.xml
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2007 10:17:09 GMT
Remove Commons-logging from CLI's pom.xml

                 Key: CLI-128
             Project: Commons CLI
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.0
         Environment: N/A
            Reporter: Andy Gerweck
            Priority: Minor

A search of the code in commons-cli 1.0 shows that CLI (rightly) doesn't do any logging, but
just raises exceptions when things go wrong. However, the pom.xml states that commons-logging
is a dependency, which isn't true. Instead of making users manually exclude commons-logging,
it should be removed from the pom.xml. 

I hope that future versions will continue to be free from logging, as it's completely unnecessary
for such a simple and elegant library. There's just no reason that a simple argument parser
should ever need to log its status, except perhaps while fixing a bug--but those statements
would be unlikely to be useful again and are better removed.
