Subject Re: Struts 1/2 and Logging
Date Sun, 08 Jul 2007 23:44:23 GMT
FWIW, my opinion would be go ahead and change it... unless someone can 
show where it would cause trouble, I'm in the better safe than sorry 
camp.  I know of a number of instances where I've seen Struts installed 
in a shared way, either at EAR-level or something like Tomcat's shared 
libs directory... I've never heard any trouble reported from those cases 
though to be fair.

I think the performance/memory implications are the only thing that 
might stop you from wanting to do this... perhaps some benchmarking is 
in order?
