Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-547) Update LoggerStream API
Date Sun, 02 Mar 2014 23:27:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-547?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13917603#comment-13917603

Matt Sicker commented on LOG4J2-547:
------------------------------------

For the streaming interface? Sure, it makes sense as part of the normal API. The OSGi bundles,
however, are meant to be split up into several JARs. It doesn't affect you if you just use
log4j-core outside of an OSGi environment. For OSGi users, though, it would be nice to only
have to load the bundles relevant to your configuration needs.

> I've got some ideas on how to improve the LoggerStream idea that I added a little while
ago. The main thing I'd like to do is extract an interface from it, rename the default implementation
to SimpleLoggerStream (part of the SimpleLogger stuff), and allow log4j implementations to
specify a different implementation if desired.
> In doing this, I'm not sure where specifically I'd prefer the getStream methods to be.
Right now, it's in Logger, but really, it could be in LoggerContext instead. I don't think
I should be required to get a Logger just to get a LoggerStream.
> Now if only the java.io package used interfaces instead of classes. This would be so
much easier to design!
