Jakarta Commons-Logging has many issues related to its dynamic 
lookup/resolution of the logging system to use.

Ceki Gülcü has an article that covers this in great detail, and at the end 
talks of static binding being the solution. Not sure if JCL has gone this 
route for the new upcoming release, but I think not, and that there are a 
huge gap between JCL's notion of what works, and the emperically collected 
use-cases that doesn't.

Ceki has released Simple Logging Facade 4 Java, SLF4J, which is basically an 
API without the implementation and that you statically bind that API to the 
implementation in a Jar file. I.e. it works for all conceived use-cases.
