Commons-logging Logger Instantiation

  • submit to reddit
        How to instantiate a logger with commons-logging (though now I'd rather use SLF4j).
Notice that some prefer to have it static, some not, and somebody prefers the name "logger" to "LOG".

import org.apache.commons.logging.Log;
import org.apache.commons.logging.LogFactory;
public class MyClass {

   private static final Log LOG = LogFactory.getLog(MyClass.class);
