Please, Ease Up. We're all volunteers here, answering questions in our spare time.
As for your question, Apache Commons Logging is a wrapper around java.util.logging, Log4j and others. If you don't know which to choose, Apache Commons Logging is the safe choice since you can change the underlaying logger without rewriting your code.
Personally, I always use Log4j for no other reason than it works for what I need it to do.
