Hola Michael,

Interesting discussion, good points.

One thing to keep in mind about log4j is that it's more mature and yet 
progressing faster than Sun's logging package in Java.  For example, 
java.util.logging in JDK 1.4 hasn't reached anywhere close to the level 
of support provided by log4j Adapters.  If an application has real 
needs for notification/remediation/trouble-ticketing, that can become a 
sore spot for system integration.  Many other projects use log4j, so if 
you integrate use of Torque along with other systems, it pays to keep a 
common ground for logging.  More about that at:  

To add to Scott's note about JDK support ... I'm working on an open 
source project which has JDK 1.4 as a dependency, and we've found this 
exact point to be one of our biggest hurdles for cross-platform 
adoption.  For example, FreeBSD is just barely offering a stable 
alternative for a 1.4 compiler.
