Configuring loggers through ConfigAdmin creates a bootstrap problem: You won't get logs until ConfgAdmin is up. It however can also log. Even if this is not the case you have to find a way to handle logs in the window between framework startup and log configuration. One way is to do an initial direct read of your log configuration from disk and then relay on ConfigAdmin for updates. This however presupposes your log configuration comes from disk - e.g. property files. Another way is to buffer logs, which is risky, because either the buffer can overflow or your system can crash before logging is configured. A third way is to run from an embedded default configuration - which dumps everything on the console typically.
I have made two log integrations similar to this one over the years - one with the "direct read on init" approach, the other with "embedded defaults" approach. Can't say which is better. As for configuring appenders: you can map select appender types to config admin properties. E.g. console and rolling file. In addition you can add support for a generic type which tries to handle the appender class as a pojo with setters. I believe this is the approach taken by the felix JAAS integration for example. To recap - config admin support is expensive. In the end logging may turn out to be the one thing that needs to be embedded into the runtime or run from the system classpath as in this case.
