Subject Re: [Discuss] Do we need to support other logging frameworks in felix framework?
Date Wed, 01 Mar 2017 22:56:04 GMT
I’m not sure what’s happening with the log service in R7, but in R6 it appears in the cmpn
rather than core spec.  It might be a bit confusing for the framework to contain the LogService
interface but not export it.

What exactly is wrong with using jul?  Aren’t there lightweight adapters available for everyones
choice of favorite log service?

to specify a logger like this but we could easily already start just in felix.
