Subject [jira] Commented: (LOGGING-124) Commons logging does not work in an osgi environment
Date Sat, 16 Aug 2008 22:49:44 GMT


Christian Schneider commented on LOGGING-124:

Ok .. I read the thread on the mailing list. But this will not really help. The last mail
says : Please don´t support OSGI as it won´t work with commons-logging anyway. Personally
I think this is quite counter productive. We have an urgent problem here. Many Open Source
libraries use commons-logging and when they move to osgi the users of these libraries have
problems. I do not think the answer can be: let all people switch to pax-logging (or yet another
logging framework). I think either commons-logging should make the move to osgi or be discontinued.
If things stay as they are people will only move away from commons-logging over time and the
problems will continue to exist over a long time. 

The minimal thing would be to explain in the commons-logging documentation what people have
to do to make their apps work. The better thing would be to provide a commons-logging jar
that simply works in osgi. I am sure the bootstrapping and detection of frameworks can be
changed in a way that is not as problematic as today.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.1.1
>            Reporter: Christian Schneider
>            Priority: Critical
> Commons logging should provide Manifest information for using it as an OSGI bundle. Eventually
detection of logging engines and loading of configs should also be changed to make commons-logging
osgi ready.
> I have given this problem the critical priority as currently many people are working
on osgi projects and as many open source libs use commons-logging this is an important thing
to solve.
