Subject Re: [logging] logging vs slf4j
Date Fri, 29 Jul 2011 15:15:12 GMT
One thing that is a hassle to me with modularized projects, even
slf4j, is that you end up with a bunch of tiny jars. IOW & IMO: a
mess. Personally, I want one jar to rule them all. If I want to switch
logging implementer or a client wants another impl I have to fiddle
with my builds and explain what each jar does. It's a hassle.
