The logger class contains a set of convenience methods to make
These need to be extended to support two additional requests:
1) We need to add methods that take an explicit resource bundle name
for internationalization (requested by IBM)
2) We need to add convenience methods for the case where one or two
parameters need to be passed to a logging message. We had been
relying on printf style formatting and concise array literals to
solve this problem for us. However, since these features are no
longer in merlin, we need to solve this in the logging API.
The addition of these extra convenience methods will complicate an
already complicated set of convenience methods. It is therefore
highly desirable to be able to better group the logging convenience
methods, to make it easier for developers to decide which set they
are dealing with.
