Subject [jira] Commented: (HBASE-2608) Switch to SLF4J
Date Mon, 24 May 2010 15:03:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-2608?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12870627#action_12870627

stack commented on HBASE-2608:
------------------------------

We log against apache commons.  Isn't changing to use slf4j just a matter of a config. change?
 (Or, rather it seems that apache commons logging will use log4j if its found in the classapath).

> There are 2 compelling reasons to switch from log4j to slf4j:
> * HBase provides a client library that is going to be embedded in another application.
 Using SLF4J lets the application chose whatever logging library it wants instead of imposing
log4j.
> * When using SLF4J, we should use logback by default as it is basically a better, faster,
stronger log4j.  Same author, new design / new code.  See http://logback.qos.ch/reasonsToSwitch.html
