Subject [DRAFT] Log4j notes for Jakarta Newsletter - July 2002
Date Tue, 06 Aug 2002 03:14:38 GMT
If anyone has comments, corrections, omissions, please let me know.  The
official version is slated to be published this Wednesday.

Editor: Mark Womack

Mark Womack submitted an initial implementation of the Receiver concept he
proposed in June ([1]) [2].  No decision has been made to include this
design in the next major version of log4j, though most comments seem
positive to date.

Ceki Gülcü announced the availability of a draft version of his ebook, "The
Complete Log4j Manual" [3].

Version 1.2.5 of log4j was released with minor changes and bug fixes [4].

There was a good discussion about socket performance and methods to increase
the throughput performance for remote logging [5]. Performance can be easily
increased by having LoggingEvent implement the Externalizable interface
instead of the Serializable interface, but at the cost of backward
compatibility. Looking for ways to increase performance and still maintain
backward compatibility.

The log4j-cvs mailing list was folded into the log4j-dev mailing list [6].
CVS messages are now posted to the dev mailing list.

Kevin Steppe outlined some future directions and features for the
JDBCAppender class [7].

Mike McAngus submitted changes to the date format related classes to support
locale, decimal separator, and timezone [8] (see his 7/14/2002 message).
The changes included the ability to set these values as sub-settings of the
date conversion operator (%d) from a configuration file.  Useful and
extensive test cases were also included as part of the submission.  After
reviewing the code, it was decided to include these changes in the next
major release of log4j (v1.3).  The changes will be checked into cvs in the
near future once a merge of the 1.2 branch is completed.
