Subject Re: [human-assisted gump] log4j back incompatible change
Date Fri, 29 Oct 2004 05:46:59 GMT
I took a quick look at the break and in no way can speak for log4j or 
Ceki, but thought I would give a quick analysis to show how little I 
know of the problem.

Swapping the derivation from Category extends Logger from Logger 
extends Category has been long expected and surely intentional.  
Catgegory has long been deprecated and this was a move to finally 
eliminate it from the tree.  At least one of the breaks occurred since 
the return type of Category.getLogger changed from Category to Logger 
with the swap.  To retain compatibility with old code, it would appear 
that Category would have to encapsulate Logger instead of extending it.
