What I mean is that should I just replace the existing 


with yours and compile again or do I need to do anything else..

> LogFormatter design
> -------------------
>          Key: NUTCH-163
>          URL:
>      Project: Nutch
>         Type: Improvement
>  Environment: All platforms
>     Reporter: Daniel Feinstein
>  Attachments:
> In Nutch project LogFormatter has duplicated functionality:
> 1) Logger records format and
> 2) Severe error handler
> The first usage is standard and usually could be overwritten by a user of the package
by modifying file.
> The second usage is much more problematic because it affects the behavior of the whole
application (not only Nutch package). To support the error handling LogFormatter enforce usage
of the formatter class by all classes of the whole application which uses Nutch package. This
is done by overwriting all the system handlers (class java.util.logging.Handler). This operation
prevents the application to use its own log formatter. Also this cause LogFormatter.hasLoggedSevere()
to be sensitive to all severe records in the big system but not only to relevant. More than
that this flag, LogFormatter.loggedSevere is never cleaned what means if an application had
one, even unrelated severe record, tools like Fetcher will never run until the application
will be restarted.
> I would like to suggest the following solutions:
> 1) To separate the functionality of log formatting and error handling or
> 2) Change LogFormatter class to be affected only by nutch package functions
> For my opinion the first solution is much better especially if error handling will be
encapsulated for each task. I have found the following usages of LogFormatter.hasLoggedSevere():
> - Fetcher
> - URLFilterChecker
> - ParseSegment
> Unfortunately I'm not familiar enough with the usages above to implement this solution
that why I suggest the second one.
> I have rewritten my own implementation of LogFormatter class which is used for more than
a year in application.
> I could provide the file but do not know how to attach it to the issue. I hope this change
will be accepted by the community.
