Subject [RT] Support OSGi R7 Logging
Date Wed, 14 Aug 2019 06:17:56 GMT

the OSGi R7 specification has an update to the Log Service which we 
should support in some way in Sling.

Today, we have our own LogService implementation 
( One way to implement R7 could be 
to simply update our implementation. However logging is not our core 
business, so I think it makes more sense to use an existing implementation.

Fortunately, the Apache Felix project has an R7 LogService 
implementation. So we could replace our own implementation with that.

Unfortunately, that's not a simple replacement as our commons.logservice 
is also implementing slf4j support by logging every received log event 
to slf4j. On the other hand we have slf4j support in our bundle (it's easy to confuse these two 
bundles we have). So we could move the slf4j support to that bundle as 
well and have everything in a single place.

Or we could remove our own logservice implementation from the logservice 
bundle and just keep the slf4j support there. That would be a little bit 
more compatible.

Just for completeness, the R7 log service specification also introduces 
streaming support for logging. The Apache Felix implementation does not 
support this. But as the streaming support is additional we can use the 
Eclipse log stream implementation on top of Felix implementation if we 
want to support that, too.
