Subject [jira] [Commented] (DMAP-152) Use Log4net to log in .NET clients
Date Wed, 25 Mar 2015 13:49:53 GMT

Werner Keil commented on DMAP-152:
----------------------------------

I saw, at least the Windows EventLog is also called via methods like {{Util.WriteEntry}},
but there's no flexible log to files, so it's worth a thought whether to include log4net,
at least in a future version.

> 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.
