Logging in Java with the JDK 1.4 Logging API and Apache log4j is the first book to discuss the two foremost logging APIs: JDK 1.4.0 logging API and Apache log4j 1.2.6 logging API for application developers. The internals of each API are examined, contrasted, and compared in exhaustive depth. Programmers will find a wealth of information simply not available elsewhere—not even on the Internet.
Each concept explained is accompanied by code example written in Java language. The book also provides guidelines for extending the existing logging frameworks to cater to application-specific needs. This is an essential handbook for logging-related information and techniques needed for developing applications in the Java language.
