    • Minor Change

      Remove direct support for JUL in the 4.x driver, making SLF4J the only way for the driver to log.  Applications requiring JUL logging must use the SFL4J-JUL bridge library.

      If SLF4J is not detected, the driver will log a single message to JUL indicating that logging is disabled.

      Original Description

      I am working on an OSGI DS project that implements an OSGI fragment with ch.qos.logback.classic to attach to slf4j. Because I am using slf4j, the driver uses it for its default logging unless I override it by setting the logger level to OFF in the code base. However, even with this, the driver continues to use com.mongodb.diagnostics.logging.JULLogger, java.util.logging.Logger, as a fallback. The driver should not force an application to output its logging but rather some configuration or programmatic setting should be added to prevent any logging to the console.

      I would think at least a public interface to the JULLoger or diagnostics.
