I just migrated an elderly application using log4j and jcl to logback
except logback doesn't run under Java 1.4 (which is what I have on this
AS/400). Bummer. I wanted the markers to be able to filter on
threads. Oh well.
I could not locate anywhere on the logback pages that Java 5 is a hard
requirement (but it was mentioned way down in a slf4j page). I'd
suggest you add a notice to the download page.
(And it appears that http://retrotranslator.sourceforge.net/ works with
logback under 1.4, but that
stack traces look somewhat strange, I'll look into that later)
