Log4j can be configured to use delegate to the standard 1.5 logging. In fact
this is preferred so you have STANDARDIZED logging support (and not a
different logger for every library).

All NEW code should use the 1.5 logging for simplicity of configuration and
for future ease of integration.

Logging was first added in Java 1.4.

But lots of folks do use log4j in favor of Java's built-in logging. 
Commons Logging permits one to code to a generic logging API and let the
application configuration determine whether that's Java's logging, log4j or
something else.
