Figured I would send this question out to the log4j side. I have already had
some email exchanges with the log4net mailing list regarding porting log4j2 to
.NET. My suggestion was that the apache logging framework be a single
architecture design which is platform agnostic and then teams which port to the
different platforms. It seems log4net was a port of log4j and may be going off
in its own direction from that initial port. My viewpoint is that's a bad idea
as one of the benefits I saw was that log4net was similar to log4j2 and we're
looking for logging frameworks for our enterprise. We have applications on
both Windows/.NET and Linux/Java so having a logging framework for Windows/.NET
which is similar to a logging framework for Linux/Java was a big plus.
While I have no doubt the effort to port log4j2 to .NET is considerable, it
would be a port and thus I'm not spending time figuring out design and
algorithms. Would anyone want to venture a guess at what that effort might be?
