Subject [jira] Commented: (PDFBOX-472) use commons logging
Date Mon, 03 Aug 2009 14:45:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-472?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12738370#action_12738370

Daniel Wilson commented on PDFBOX-472:

I think everyone agrees that the logging should be changed.

If I'm reading this right, 3 experience Java developers, 2 of them on the PDFBox team, prefer
3 different ways of changing.

How do we resolve this and move forward?

For my needs, the current process is OK, though the performance hit on the logger().fine line
displeases me.  But for others, what I put in is not OK.

> LoggingObject logs all pdfbox output to a file PDFBox.log using java.util.logging.  The
app may not have permission to create this file, the user probably won't be looking at it
for errors, and for long running server tasks, this file may grow very large.
> It would be much nicer to simply use apache commons logging (or even SLF4J) and allow
the application to setup logging as they see fit.
