http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=28237 [PATCH] Use the commons logging LogFactory also in Fop.java ------- Additional Comments From [EMAIL PROTECTED] 2004-04-06 21:48 ------- Simon, if I understand you correctly (and pardon me, I'm not a logging expert): 1.) With our current process of setting the logger in FOP.java directly, we end up overriding whatever the command-line user may have specified on their machine? (Remember, FOP embedded users set Logging via the Driver class anyway.) 2.) Will FOP still quietly default to SimpleLog if the user doesn't enter anything explicitly? I would guess 95%* of our **command-line** user base either doesn't care about logging, or if they did care they want the command- line output (i.e., SimpleLog) anyway--does your change reflect this? We don't want users practicing with the command line to have to distract themselves with the logger. 3.) As another option for the command-line user, given only a small minority want to log to a file, would it be better to provide a -logfile option, that once specified, logs to that file, and absent the setting of that option, will go quietly go to the SimpleLog? Thanks, Glen
