Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3706) Ship setup to log with log4j.
Date Thu, 21 Mar 2013 18:49:16 GMT


Mark Miller commented on SOLR-3706:

One thing that we would lose in tests with the current approach is []'s SolrLogFormatter.
We would probably want to re-implement it. I'd much prefer that to trying to straddle different
logging impls for example and tests. I think devs should see the logging users will see. And
did I mention the single line logging?

> Currently we default to java util logging and it's terrible in my opinion.
> *It's simple built in logger is a 2 line logger.
> *You have to jump through hoops to use your own custom formatter with jetty - either
putting your class in the start.jar or other pain in the butt solutions.
> *It can't roll files by date out of the box.
> I'm sure there are more issues, but those are the ones annoying me now. We should switch
to log4j - it's much nicer and it's easy to get a nice single line format and roll by date,
> If someone wants to use JUL they still can - but at least users could start with something
