      Description

      While searching for instructions on how to configure the SimpleLog that
      comes with commons logging, the only reference to SimpleLog is found at
      http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/logging/commons-logging-1.0.4/docs/guide.html#Configuration,
      however this link is broken.

      So far it's taken an entire afternoon of googling for information on how to
      switch logging on using commons-logging, without any success.

      There needs to be some simple documentation included to get the user from
      nowhere to a basic somewhere in a reasonable number of steps.

        There seems to be something wrong with the links between JavaDocs and the other
        documentation. Until those have been fixed you can find the JavaDocs for
        SimpleLog here:
        http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/logging/commons-logging-1.0.4/docs/apidocs/org/apache/commons/logging/impl/SimpleLog.html

        I've committed a section in the user guide based on the javadocs.
