Review request: 8011380: FX dependency on PlatformLogger broken

History and details are described below.
I add back the getLevel(int), setLevel(int) and isLoggable(int) methods
but marked deprecated and also revert the static final variables to
resolve the regression. They can be removed when JavaFX transitions to
use the Level enums (I'll file one issue for FX to use
PlatformLogger.Level and one for core-libs to remove the deprecated
methods). The performance overhead is likely small since it's direct
mapping from int to the Level enum that was used in one of your previous
Laurent - you have a patch to add isLoggable calls in the awt/swing
code. Can you check if there is any noticeable performance difference?
I also take the opportunity to reconsider what
JavaLoggerProxy.getLevel() should return when it's a custom Level. Use
of logging is expected not to cause any fatal error to the running
application. The previous patch throwing IAE needs to be fixed. I
propose to return the first Level.intValue() >= the custom level value
since the level value is used to evaluate if it's loggable.
History and details:
JavaFX 8 has converted to use sun.util.logging.PlatformLogger
(https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-24458). I was involved in the
early discussion but wasn't aware of the decision made. Thanks to Alan
for catching this regression out before it's integrated to jdk8.
jfxrt.jar is cobundled with jdk8 during the installer build step. My
build doesn't build installer and thus we didn't see this regression.
I ran jdeps on jdk8/lib/ext/jfxrt.jar (windows-i586) that shows 112
references to PlatformLogger and on jdk7/lib/jfxrt.jar that shows no
reference to sun.util.logging.
I have a method finder tool (planning to include it in jdk8) to search
for use of PlatformLogger.getLevel and it did find 2 references from
JavaFX 8 is going to upgrade to use JDK 8 for JavaFX build
(https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-27794) soon (currently it's
built with JDK 7). As soon as JavaFX code are changed to reference
PlatformLogger.Level enum instead, we can remove the deprecated methods
and change the PlatformLogger constants.
JavaFX 2.2.x doesn't use sun.util.logging and so this has no impact to
it. In any case, JavaFX 2.2.x only runs either bundled with a
corresponding JDK 7u release, or as a standalone library for JDK 6 only.
