Description Konstantin Kolinko 2015-11-05 01:07:45 UTC
In August 2015 there was an announcement that Apache LogJ 1.x has reached EOL.

Link: http://s.apache.org/Wzn

As such, I propose to drop building and providing
extras/tomcat-juli.jar
extras/tomcat-juli-adapters.jar

as main goal for these libraries is to support plugging Log4J 1.x directly into Apache Commons Logging layer of Tomcat logging.

In my understanding Log4J 2, Logback can be plugged directly into java.util.logging layer. Though our documentation does not yet describe this.

Fixed in 9.0.x for 9.0.0.M7 onwards with no plans to backport.
