Bean Utils Logging Revisited
Removing Dependency On Commons-Logging
SimonKiching has proposed a very interesting revision to the way that BeanUtils handles logging. This proposal would remove the need for a dependency on commons-logging with logging only being enabled when the commons-logging jar is discovered in the class path.
BeanUtils is widely used (as a result of inclusion in many popular downstream applications) so any important changes like this must be considered carefully and well tested.
