If you use System.Logger then your log messages will end up in
whatever logging backend has been plugged in through the system's
LoggerFinder provider, without having to declare any dependencies
on that specific backend.

However - if you're writing an application and have selected a
specific logging API for it (say - SLF4J or Log4J) then you should
preferably use the logging facade provided by those APIs.

best regards,
