I don't understand your reply. What is it that you think is so  
different between SLF4J and Commons Logging? SLF4J is just as  
appropriate to use with small components as Commosn Logging is. They  
are both adapters that require you to choose a logging implementation.  
They both allow the implementation to be chosen when you package your  
application - without recompliling anything.

So why do you think Commons Logging gives you more choices than SLF4J
