Logging Dilemma

I need to use the freemarker templating engine for my app.
But my app uses a homwgrown logging api...
Freemarker supports java logging,log4j,avalon and some other logging api.

My question is that is there any way for me to send logs from say java 1.4 logging api to my logging system.

In log4j you can write your own classes that write logging messages somewhere (for example to your own logging system). In Java logging, you can do the same by implementing a java.util.logging.Handler. Lookup the documentation.
