Subject [jira] [Commented] (POOL-266) Common Pool does not use log api
Date Tue, 19 Aug 2014 08:49:19 GMT


Mark Thomas commented on POOL-266:

This is not the place to re-hash the "which logging framework is better" debate. I would also
add that points made in a civil tone are far more likely to be listened to than those in a
hostile tone.

A quick code review shows one use of stderr which looks entirely appropriate. In an OOME situation
writing directly to stderr is more likely to succeed than writing via a framework.

The only use of stdout is for the abandonded logging which is covered by POOL-267.

+1 to everything Phil said. Absent a good reason to add a dependency (and I haven't seen one
so far) this issue is going to get resolved as WONTFIX.

Errors are printed directly with System.out or System.err. So it's difficult to have information
in the same log file as other application log file.
> Is there any reason to not use log api ?
> If you are interested I can do a patch with the usage of logback API.
