Things do Go Wrong Sometimes

Chuk Munn is a Sun Evangelist who I met last week, a comment from him in the Malaysian Java User Group lately, however, went very wrong and was found in strong disagreement by a number of us.

It's a topic on class-loading which he shared based on his past experience that "(you shall) never use a functionality from an open source project if it is available unless you absolutely have to."

I'm not sure what he was trying to sell, maybe the Java Logging API provided by the SDK versus Log4J. But certainly from me, I would rather put the blame on the container of not doing a good isolation work instead of blaming open source.
