Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-549) Enable configurable logging (jul or log4j)
Date Wed, 23 Apr 2008 16:47:21 GMT


Henri Biestro commented on SOLR-549:

I agree on all terms; it only solves the "how do I use log4j in solr" and as as such is definitely
not as feature-full nor as generic as slf4j.
I also agree that the logging configuration issue is not something that Solr can or should
take care of; and I'm not suggesting that we try. I'm just seeking a way to open a door so
logging is a choice that can be configured & packaged easily.
The only plus of the patch is that it avoids adding a hard library-dependency (whether on
slf4j or log4j) which seemed to be one the blockers in past threads.
If this constraint is relaxed, let's by all means use slf4j and be done!

> java.util.logging does not allow to easily create a self-sufficient 'war' with respect
to logging configuration.
> The java.util.logging.LogManager used by the application is always created by the container
and is thus only configurable through the container; furthermore, if one already uses say
log4j in a webapp that embeds Solr, it does not even seem possible to re-route jul logging
into log4j just by configuration.
