Subject Re: Setting up logging - Log4j

As much as I respect Ceki, I do think that there is a place for
commons-logging.  It does provide a nice transition platform when you are
switching out of JDK1.4-logging, because you were brain-dead at the time you
chose it ;-).

It is also very useful for people writing commercial re-distributed
applications, that want to allow for end-user flexibility on the real
logging package.

But read the article and decide for yourself.
