Subject [jira] [Resolved] (SMX4-727) Consider dropping commons-logging for standard Java.util.logging
Date Thu, 01 Dec 2011 11:25:39 GMT


Gert Vanthienen resolved SMX4-727.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

As other projects have been moving towards SLF4J (cfr.
and, we followed suit and went that way
as well for all our code.

I know the implementation of commons-logging/log4j are better but since ServiceMix is Karaf
based we always use the Log4j backend, no matter which API we use. And since the java.util.logging
API is good enough to be able to distinguish several log levels, I would prefer dropping the
dependency on commons-logging.
> If the majority of developers disagree on this, then lets comment on this issue with
the reasons and we'll close it. At least then we'll have that choice documented.
