Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3706) Ship setup to log with log4j.
Date Fri, 22 Mar 2013 04:41:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-3706?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13609914#comment-13609914

David Smiley commented on SOLR-3706:
------------------------------------

As long it's _also_ easy to handle an SLF4J-less war in Tomcat, then I think it's fine too.
 Nonetheless this is going to be a new thing a deployer of Solr needs to check the box in
their checklist.  It might be a good idea to have a very early classloader check in SolrDispatchFilter
that checks if SLF4J is there and if not then gives you a very helpful message to remedy it
-- i.e. you need to place SLF4J jars in your app-server somewhere or re-pack the WAR with
them.

> 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,
etc.
> If someone wants to use JUL they still can - but at least users could start with something
decent.
