Subject [poll] Change logging to SLF4J?
Date Tue, 06 May 2008 14:40:52 GMT
Hello-

There has been a long running thread on solr-dev proposing switching
the logging system to use something other then JDK logging.
http://www.nabble.com/Solr-Logging-td16836646.html
http://www.nabble.com/logging-through-log4j-td13747253.html

We are considering using http://www.slf4j.org/.  Check:
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-560

The "pro" argument is that:
* SLFJ allows more flexibility for people using solr outside the
canned .war to configure logging without touching JDK logging.

The "con" argument goes something like:
* JDK logging is already is the standard logging framework.
* JDK logging is already in in use.
* SLF4J adds another dependency (for something that already works)

On the dev lists there are a strong opinions on either side, but we
would like to get a larger sampling of option and validation before
making this change.

[  ] Keep solr logging as it is.  (JDK Logging)
[  ] Use SLF4J.

As an bonus question (this time fill in the blank):
I have tried SOLR-560 with my logging system and ___________________________.

thanks
ryan
