Subject [jira] [Created] (DMAP-152) Use log4net to log in .NET clients
Date Wed, 25 Mar 2015 13:41:52 GMT
Werner Keil created DMAP-152:

             Summary: Use log4net to log in .NET clients
                 Key: DMAP-152
             Project: DeviceMap
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: .NET API
         Environment: Windows
            Reporter: Werner Keil
            Assignee: eberhard speer
            Priority: Minor

Currently the .NET clients have a very simple logging abstraction only writing to the console.
While it would add one external dependency (of another Apache project ;-) ) using *Log4net*
in these places could improve flexibility and control of logging, e.g. log into both files
and the console, tweak log levels, etc. 

I evaluated .NET logging for a client project and did not find a satisfying built-in log API
similar to at least *java.util.logging* on the Java side. If it exists, please advise. Since
our solution here has to combine .NET and Java apps working together in a larger system Log4net
and Log4J were a pretty natural choice. Unless Microsoft has something out of the box in .NET
this being an Apache project would also make the license topic a no-brainer.
