Subject RE: JDBCAppender proposal

I just wanted to express concern about ripping it out (even if it's a
temporary move) without a replacement.

I've got existing documentation at my company telling people how to use the
JDBC Appender, and there are plans to use it in production.  I have to think
this situation is common.

Removing an Appender entirely - isn't this a major backward compatibility
issue?  I'm just uneasy removing it from the core Log4j product without an
immediate replacement.

Unfortunately, I don't have enough expertise in JDBC to add value on the
development effort, and for that I apologize.  If I had the expertise, I'd
jump right in on my own time.

But ... please don't let us hanging on this.

Mike

Mark,

Does this mean that when someone downloads Log4j 1.2.8, the JDBC Appender
wouldn't be included?

Subject: JDBCAppender proposal


I propose that we place the current version of
o.a.log4j.jdbc.JDBCAppender.java into the log4j-sandbox (I don't know if we
should remove it altogether from the v1.3 release?).  In doing so,
interested log4j developers need to step forward to begin the task of
continuing its development.  I know Kevin Steppe had more ideas for evolving
this class, and others have spoken up as well.  Sounds like it needs the
ability to support different jdbc driver behaviors, clob's, etc.  It seems
that this appender is popular with the log4j user community, so I think it
is right for it to be given some needed attention and upgrades.

Interested developers, demonstrating interest, proposals, and ability can be
granted committer rights to the sandbox cvs.

Once JDBCAppender reaches a stable point of evolution, we can vote to
re-admit it to the core release.

+1

-Mark
