Guys, actually a lot of the Apache DS code is based on commons-log,
other parts rely on java.util.logging, and the remaining use log4j. 

I really don't care using Common-Logging, Log4j, JDK Loggin API, JULI or
AUGUSTI, but either we have a clear choice, or we have to keep the
logging apis which are in use actually. 

>>From *my* point of view, log4j is perfect for what we are doing

Now, answering Trustin question, using java.util.logging doesn't seems
*to me* a very good idea. It has the same drawback than log4j - cf Marc
& Noel answers - and it does not compare with log4j in term of
fonctionality, or tooling.

If I have to make a choice, based on my preferences, it would be :
1) log4j
2) commons-logging + log4j
3) java.util.lang

If I have to make a choice, based on what ApacheDS will be in two years,
it may be :
1) commons-logging/Juli + log4j
2) log4j
3) java.util.lang

Anyway, let's make a clear choice, and let's stick with this choice !
