java.util.Logging configuration...

I've finally got fed up of the crappy inefficient "SystemOut" logging implemented by others around here and decided to overhaul ALL our logging with 'propper' java.util.Logging.

However, I'm getting confused about how to configure stuff to get what I want!

My code has sections like this:



with logging calls throughout that are like this:




At first this looked to be working ok... I was getting log files created for each of my various functional areas and they ARE being populated with the information. BUT - I have 2 problems:
1) The data is in XML format rather than just simple text, and
2) I get multiple versions of the log file (one for each calling class it seems)...

I looked at my logging.properties file in the following location that I assumed to be the relevant one for my local instance of WAS6 within my RAD6 IDE:
"C:\Program Files\IBM\Rational\SDP\6.0\runtimes\base_v6\java\jre\lib\logging.properties"

..and found that I already have file handlers configured (I think) to use the Simple formatter...

am I missing something - Is there a way I can get my logs to append rather than create new files?

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
