Using the java.util.logging package from JDK1.4 in JDK1.3?

In a project I am working on I need the ability to Logg different messages. The logging package from the JDK1.4 is pretty much what I need. The project will be updated to JDK1.4 once it is released, but until then I have to use JDK1.3.
What I tried was to just copy the specific package into my own class structure but when I try to call a class from the logging package I get following error:

java.lang.SecurityException: Prohibited package name: java.util.logging

Why do I get this error and is there a way (other than renaming the package) to use this package without getting the error?

This is a security thing. You just arent allowed to put classes in the java.* package. This is to prevent "fake" classes.
What you might try is to put these classes into the file with all java standard classes. I think it was called classes.zip once. On my linux it is called rt.jar

try to put the classes into this jar file and tell me if this works.

Try sticking it in the Java extensions directory.  Do not know if that will work, but sounds worth a try.

The solution exorcist provided "worked". It got rid of the Security Exception. Then I found that that package uses some native code, so I will just have to wait until the project is switched over to JDK1.4.

Thanks for the help

java.util.logging is an implmentation of the apache log4j logging.

What you can do is use the apache logging until you are in jdk1.3 and the switch to jdk 1.4 java.util.logging would be very easy.

This is the url to download the logging package from apache -
