>>> Currently there is no specific support for XML output in the unified logging framework. Output can be directed either to stdout, stderr or plain text files. I'm not entirely sure how the migration of the XML logging will be done. Perhaps it will be preceded by an RFE to add better support for XML outputs in the unified logging framework, or it might just be treated as a regular text file.

Ok, thanks.. I didn’t get that sense from the JEP. Then I (with all due respect) would suggest that this framework is being build upside down (as per the email I just previously sent).

Kind regards,
