http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=28044 Patch, Avalon Logging to Commons Logging Conversion. ------- Additional Comments From [EMAIL PROTECTED] 2004-03-30 22:14 ------- [Jeremias] Yes, this work definitely needs optimization--what you mention is a major area (Axis does exactly as you say over and over again.)--I just did a straight conversion first (several hours of work). I'm not a logging expert--I just need a foothold for the conversion that can *then* be optimized. If right now as you say, we're just the same as Avalon, I'm quite thrilled that I could even manage that. The changes you are suggesting can happen next. BTW, would you already know how to make these changes quickly, after I commit the patch? If you can zoom through this in 20-30 minutes, that would save me a lot of time. Else I'll research it. [Chris] <Q> I think this is the logger for Batik in the Transcoder. If we dont set it, does this mean there is no way of seeing warnings from Batik processing? </Q> Well, Batik doesn't use Avalon. It was the logger for the Avalon ContainerUtil (whether the latter is currently activated, I didn't research), which in turn can't accept a Commons-Logger. If we need to, we can give it an Avalon ConsoleLogger instead. Or, switch to a Container that will allow us to use Commons-Logging. Or, not use a container at all (I don't know what a "container" here does for us anyway.) Or, switch to System.err.println() a la Batik and Xalan. I don't care much here. (Perhaps even ContainerUtil can be subclassed to take a Commons Logging object?) Comments welcome--but we should probably get this working as well. Glen
