Logfile from different classes

How do i create a logfile that can be accessed from different classes. I only want to use one logfile which will be open while the application i make is running. It will only close when i close my application. I have many classes in different files. What can i do to make the Log class a public accessible class to all the others.

You could apply the Singleton pattern for the Logger class (all code would use Logger.getInstance(), and get a reference to the same Logger instance).
This Logger class should be able to handle input from different threads at once, to avoid intermixed output in the file.
Hope this helps.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
