Subject Re: Accessing the Commons Logging Interface

Before You Start

    If you're planning to use Log4J as your logging implementation, grab 
a fresh copy of commons-logging from the commons site and install it. 
 There were issues with the JAR included in the 1.1 bx distributions 
that cause ... problems :-)

Doing the Nasty With commons-logging:


import org.apache.commons.logging.Log;
import org.apache.commons.logging.LogFactory;

public class Bar
    private static Log log = LogFactory.getLog(Bar.class);

    public void baz()
        if (log.isDebugEnabled())

That really is it.  There is some property config you could possibly 
need if you're using Log4J under JDK1.4.  You didn't say much about your 
environment, so I'll leave this out for now.
