> Extended API: getChildLogger(String)
> ------------------------------------
>                 Key: LOGGING-95
>                 URL:
>             Project: Commons Logging
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>         Environment: Operating System: other
> Platform: Other
>            Reporter: Jörg Hohwiller
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 2.0
>         Attachments:, ASF.LICENSE.NOT.GRANTED--getChildLogger.diff
> This is a feature request for the commons-logging API already discussed on the
> mailing list. The idea is to have an extended interface rather than Log that
> adds additional methods (getChildLogger and getName) that have already been
> requested for a long while. The suggested approach does not break compatibility
> of JCL. The existing Log interface is not touched and shall esp. not be
> deprecated. The new interface may only be used as needed but aims to prevent
> having even more additional logging APIs in future. The suggestion is to change
> the implementation in a way that all classes that implement Log shall implement
> Logger and fullfill the contract of the additional methods. In my request I
> still leave it open what happens to LogFactory but my suggestion is to leave it
> untouched (except for javadoc updates). Further I recomment to add an abstract
> class to the "impl" package that implements the Logger interface but does not
> implement any methods. The Logger interface may then recommend in its javadoc to 
> extend the abstract class rather than directly implementing the interface. This
> would allow to have less trouble if -however- in future an additional feature
> request for the Logger API arises.
