> RFC 5424 defines StructuredData. While implementing this for Logback it was found that
making SLF4J support a Message interface and then providing Message definitions for a "SimpleMessage"
(message text only), "ParamaterizedMessage" (message plus substitution parameters) and StructuredDataMessage
(a message that allows the formatted message to conform to RFC 5424) allows the API to be
easily extendable with new Message types and makes it more efficient to pass them through
the logging implementation.
> Log4j 2.0 should incorporate this into both the API and the implementation. This will
allow for easy implementation of a SyslogAppender that conforms with the new Syslog specification
(see http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5424) as well as using the RFC 5424 as a standard layout
that can be used to transport messages via JMS or other protocols.
> See http://github.com/rgoers/slf4j and http://github.com/rgoers/logback for examples
of how I accomplished this for slf4j & logback.
