Description Andy Oliver 2002-03-12 16:34:50 UTC
POI still does not distribute the version of log4J its using.  We SHOULD build 
the distribution with at least the current released non-alpha/beta version of 
log4j and try to work with the rest.  Because of the constants we're using from 
LOG4J we have to rebuild to work with other versions.  This is bad, very bad.  
We should fix that for 2.0.  I have some ideas on that that I'll post to the 

The POI distribution jar is mislabled as 1.1 not 1.4583.

This stuff should be fixed before 1.5 is released.

IMHO it's time to use the famous logging facade.
We could then have *any* logger optional, because we would give a simple 
System.out logger and a null logger.

Is this ok?

Do you mean the logging project from commons?  Last time I talked about doing 
that the idea was not warmly received.
Comment 3 Andy Oliver 2002-03-12 23:22:19 UTC
last time it was the issue of it not being ready yet.  Lets check with scott.

Furthermore the binary distribution doesn't contain commons-logging which well
is needed for the thing to work so should be included IMNSHO.

This appears fixed as far as I can tell.  Resolving.
