About this book
In development scenarios where things can't be run in a debugger, or when you run the risk of masking the problem, logs are the greatest source of information about running a program. Pro Apache Log4j, Second Edition provides best practices guidelines and comprehensive coverage of the most recent release.
Step by step, the book explains core concepts, from basic to advanced. Code samples are in Java and include guidelines for different application-specific needs. You'll also learn how to extend the API to write custom components and best practices for using the feature-rich log4j API. This book concludes with enterprise Java applications using log4j with JSP and J2EE.
