I would prefer SLF4J, personally.  It is by far the most popular based on
my experience with the libraries that I use.  This is assuming the
component does use a logging framework.  Others have suggested that it does
not.  I don't know that it really matters to me one way or the other, but I
do know that in the past when I didn't have any logging when things went
bump, it was hard to determine what to do to fix it.  Some folks keep JMX
stats and the like to help and I suppose that's an option.
