Orthogonality is a concept often used to describe modular and maintainable software, but it's more easily understood by way of a case study. In this article, Jens Dietrich demystifies orthogonality and some related design principles by demonstrating their use in the popular Log4j utility library. He also discusses how Log4j violates orthogonality in a couple of instances and discusses possible workarounds to the issues raised.
