What is the benefit of logging libraries?
Posted on 2014-12-03
My question is very open ended; basically, why were logging libraries created? For the sake of discussion I'd just like to talk about Java.
What magical things do logging libraries do, that a class with static file objects won't let us do?
Far as I can see, logging libraries are just another dependency in Maven that can cause a build to fail.
I'll admit I'm fairly inexperienced, so I might be missing something obvious... I would be grateful to learn their importance.
Thanks in advance!
