I suggested a log4j-JMX project as a potential Summer of Code  
project, but there were no proposals.  I've skimmed this issue  
before, but never in depth.

I don't recall finding any archived discussions on the goals, design,  
status of the existing JMX code within log4j.  It just seemed to  
appear in the CVS fully formed and have had little (if any)  
subsequent development.  I recall seeing some discussion that had  
been designed with an early JMX version and was either not compatible  
or less than optimal with current releases of JMX.

I assume that we would be eventually be interested in the code.  But  
it would be first good to know what specifically is wrong or less  
than optimal with the current JMX related code and have an outline of  
the options to fix the problems.  If you have specific things that  
are broken in the JMX implementation, it would be great if you could  
create bug reports for each specific flaw and ideally associated  
patches with each.  Much better to have multiple bug reports instead  
of a "Fix broken JMX code" bug report that addresses multiple issues.

I believe the current JMX related code allows some manipulation of  
the logging configuration at run time.  One things that seemed  
potentially interesting is to have a JMX appender that would allow  
log4j calls to generate JMX events.

Would appreciate any and all comments.
