Subject Re: [classlib] logging from within our implementation
Date Tue, 30 May 2006 20:28:30 GMT
I can agree that libraries like java.util and java.math probably will
not need any logging on the production stage. But some parts of the
classlib look more like applications rather than libraries. Providers
can be the good example. And logging for such apps can be considered
as part of UI. Let's say UI for advanced users. Such app will lost its
usefulness if logging is completely removed.

A lot of applications use logging. All enterprise servers extensively
use logging in spite of the fact that performance is very important
for j2ee.
