Commons Logging Package
Version 1.0.4
Release Notes
This document contains the release notes for this version of the Commons
Logging package. It is primarily a service release for downstream users.
The main emphasis maintenance and code cleanup release,
with some new features including support for both the old 1.2.x series
of Log4J releases and the new 1.3.x series of releases.
The following paragraphs document changes since the previous release
(version 1.0.3). The documentation (userguide and javadoc)
has also been improved.
[ALL FILES] This version of Commons Logging is released under the
Apache License (Version 2.0). All source files have been
modified to reflect this.
[maven.xml] Added beginnings of a Maven-based build, primarily for the
purpose of creating documentation consistent with Mavenized
commons projects. The official build system for the software
is still the Ant "build.xml" file.
[AvalonLogger] Added AvalonLogger, which wraps the logger used by the
Avalon framework. As with other implementations, this
is compiled only if the appropriate dependencies are
Added Jdk13LumberjackLogger, which wraps the implementation
of the JSR-47 logging APIs (for JDKs before 1.4) provided
by the SourceForge "lumberjack" project.
[LogFactoryImpl] If an InvocationTargetException is returned during the
creation of a new Log instance, unwrap the underlying
cause and pass it in to the LogConfigurationException
constructor. This will make the actual cause of the
problem easier to diagnose.
[LogFactoryImpl] If the isAssignableFrom() test fails because there is more
than one instance of org.apache.commons.logging.Log visible
in the class loader hierarchy, make the exception message
that is reported explicitly state this, rather than the
potentially misleading claim that an implementation class
does not implement Log.
[Log4JLogger] Changes to allow this logger to support both the existing 1.2.x
series of releases and also the upcoming 1.3.x series of Log4J
[SimpleLog] Added support for setting date-time format.
[MANIFEST.MF] Remove reference to Log4J from the manifest classpath.
Include root cause in the text of the message, if present.
[LogFactory] Improve usability of error messages reporting
configuration problems.
[JDK14Logger] Implement Serializable, remove "final" declaration for
easy subclassing.
[Log4JLogger] Implement Serializable, remove "final" declaration for
easy subclassing.
[NoOpLogger] Implement Serializable, remove "final" declaration for
easy subclassing.
[SimpleLog] Make SimpleLog more friendly to the security manager
in an applet environment, by swallowing any security
exceptions when looking up system properties that are
not accessible.
(These are carried forward from Version 1.0.3)
[LogSource] Previously deprecated, replaced by LogFactory.
[Log4jFactory] A proxy instance of this class was transparently created
when Log4J logging was selected, yet it serves no useful
purpose. The class is now deprecated, and the proxy
instance is no longer created.
[Log4JCategoryLog] This class has been replaced by Log4JLogger, which
corresponds to the availability of the new Logger class
in Log4J 1.2 and later.
