[logback-user] Manifest Question

The appender way is the easiest way but there are bunch of caveats to that
method. We used to do it this way but needed more flexibility.
If you are going to do it the custom Appender way I recommend not using the
MDC. You also can really only have pretty static attributes.
For example for Spring MVC we actually add the routing path to the MDC and
thus the Appender would not be helpful.
Yeah you could make a unified thread local context that your custom
appender uses but that is basically what the MDC is.
There is also the tricky biz of handing of dynamic MDC information to child
threads. Again for example for every request we generate a uuid so that we
can track that request and everything it executes.
But if your attributes are mainly static I agree that the custom appender
is the route to go.... I feel stupid for not mentioning it first.
