Support for jboss logging version 3.4.1 without programmatic API

For making the JBoss deployment lighter, and for reducing downtime while deployments, we consider that using jboss logging is more convenient than log4j.

Unfortunately, this logging framework is not supported by instana (see case #30712). So then, we kindly ask for this idea to be taken into account.
Moreover, I dare to imagin that maybe it could not be quite difficult to include, due to the fact that jboss logging runs onto a supported logging framework.

    Dear Yinchi,

    Replying your questions, we are using the version 3.4.1 of jboss logging, and we are not using programmatic API.

    Thanks for reaching out.

    We actually already support JBoss Logging from 3.0 to 3.4 with the limitation: "Only the programmatic API is traced. Logging via annotations like @Message or @MessageLogger is not supported."

    Which version you are using? Are you using programmatic API?
