Date Wed, 27 Mar 2013 15:39:17 GMT


Steve Rowe commented on SOLR-3706:

bq. That is, Steve Rowe

Cool, I got a "you got mentioned in JIRA" email, which prodded me to do more than TL;DR this
issue's comments - I didn't know about this JIRA feature.

bq. We still need to update the maven dependencies. This is my first attempt, but it still
fails with: [...] I won't be able to look at this for a while, so someone else can pick it
up or I will try to tackle it later

I'll take a look today.

> 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
