Poll result: most popular logging framework is.... good old log4j !!!

while quite a few people use the abstraction of slf4j (I wonder how many users of logback also checked slf4j, since the recommended way to use logback is to go through slf4j...)

Anyway having used myself log4j for several DECADES, I can only recommend upgrading to logback, it's effectively rich with new features and substantially very similar to good old log4j...

Elasticsearch seems to be still quite a niche technology... personally I foresee a great growth (I normally fail all my forecasts anyway... in 1986 I forecast no future for Windows.. and in 1995 no future for Java...)
