starting out with 'log4j', I have been creating a logging framework for
the scripting language "Open Object Rexx (ooRexx)" [cf.
<http://www.ooRexx.org>], dubbed "log4r".
It tries to stick to the 'log4j' architecture as closely as possible,
OTOH it tries to improve a few little things, like it allows for
creating named layouts and named filters, or using strictly
"log4r.config." as the lead-in string for all general configuration
options in properties files.
The initial implementation of the 'log4r' frameworks implements the
There will be an overview article which will demonstrate how to employ
the 'log4r' framework for ooRexx programs, a brief overview of the
architecture, of the classes, a documentation on defining configuration
entries in properties files.
- LogManager (can be used to create/retrieve loggers, appenders,
layouts, filters by name)
- LogLog (can be used by the framework classes for log messages)
- classes for creating loggers:
- classes for creating appenders:
- classes for creating layouts
- classes for creating filters
The planned licenses are CPL 1.0 and Apache 2.0.
As I have created the framework being inspired by and adhering quite
closely to 'log4j', and seeing that comparable frameworks for other
programming languages exist and seem to be hosted/incorporated at/into
commons-logging, I am wondering, whether there would be interest in
adding the 'log4r' framework to the 'log4j' family of frameworks?
If I am using the wrong e-mail list, please let me know.
Very interested in your comments/hints.
