The right time to throw out JUL

There is an old Swedish saying: tjugondedag Knut åker julen ut. JUL is Christmas in Swedish and on this day, twenty days after Christmas Eve, we celebrate the end of Christmas, i.e. end of JUL. It was thus with great pleasure we got rid of JUL (java.util.logging) from one of our Java projects Today in favor of YAL (Yet Another Logger alias System.Logger that shipped with Java 9). The timing could not have been better.
