The svnClientAdapter module, which is the core of Subclipse and svnAnt,
curently has a requirement on commons-logging. There are literally just a
handful of places in the code that use it and I am pretty sure it has no
real use at all in Subclipse. Anyway, with Subclipse we have run into a
handful of users that have a newer copy of commons-logging.jar in their
global lib/ext folder. This causes a startup conflict with Subclipse and
our plugin fails to load. Kind of bad considering that we do not really
need or use it anyway.
I propose that we just change svnClientAdapter to use the Java 1.4 logging
framework so that this will not be an issue. This would impose a Java 1.4
requirement on our code. I think we sort of have one already, but am not
This would not apply to the old Subclipse line for Eclipse 2.x (which can
use Java 1.3 in the IBM versions of that IDE).
Does anyone have any thoughts or concerns to raise?
I have no intention of doing anything other than converting the currently
limited use of commons-logging over to Java 1.4.
