Subject Re: commons logging in httpclient

Hello Jon,

No. Unless you want to modify all source code and compile your own
version of HttpClient, that is.

In that JAR, you should put:
- all commons logging classes
- your custom implementation of the o.a.c.l.Log class
- a properties file named commons-logging.properties
  that configures your implementation of ...Log


(alternatively, don't use your own ...Log class but
 configure the SimpleLog in the properties file)

Don't set system properties if you don't have to. Are you sure
that the applet is allowed to do that in the first place? Are
you sure that your code is executed before HttpClient classes
are referenced? It's a static configuration you want, so use a
static properties file.

Try the above. If you still get these requests, please post a
list of class names so we have a clue about what's happening.
Right now, I suspect that your code does not set the system
property in time. The default mechanism of commons logging
will then check for the presence of a few classes to select a
default implementation.

Actually, you might have asked the commons logging experts first.
