Remove gwt-log logging mechanism and replace with standard GWT logging
Last modified: 2013-09-01 06:18:13 EDT
GWT 2.x has rolled in much of the logging functionality into the core framework. Prior to GWT 2.x there was no other logging framework, however, the later versions of GWT have incorporated almost all the functionality of gwt-log.
GWT Logging: http://code.google.com/webtoolkit/doc/latest/DevGuideLogging.html
I have fixed the api compatiblity issues by adding an adapter (Log) that makes the GWT logging (jdk logging) appear api compatible with gwt-log (log4j style) logging.
This is one approach, I'm sure there are others. Or you could just use native jdk logging outright.
1) instantiating a logger
Logger logger = Logger.getInstance(""); // put in whatever category
2) log your message with new and different levels
logger.fine("my log message");
A new option with jdk logging is the ability to CONFIG loggging, which can be useful in itself.
Bulk closing of items that are on_qa and in old RHQ releases, which are out for a long time and where the issue has not been re-opened since.
