Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-376) Move from log4j to slf4j
Date Wed, 17 Sep 2008 20:09:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JSPWIKI-376?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12631907#action_12631907

Harry Metske commented on JSPWIKI-376:

I'm trying to imagine how this all works on the "problem" AppServers like WebSphere and JBoss.
If we keep shipping log4j.jar in WEB-INF/lib like we do now, I doubt that the classloading
issues will be gone.
If that is the case, then deploying JSPWiki on WebSphere or JBoss still requires some shuffling
of jar files around (which is no different than now).

Since solving the classloading issue was the primary reason for introducing slf4j, we should
first know for sure if this can be solved and how.
I can do some investigation on this (unless somebody already know the answers off course)

> SLF4J allows far more flexible logging than log4j, and it would allow us to get rid of
these dumb log4j compatibility problems that sometimes occur.  It also plays better with other
applications, gives the user more power to choose how to log his stuff, and is also pretty
cool otherwise. The change would be relatively trivial, and would probably be largely invisible
to the users (since we could continue shipping with necessary log4j jars).
