You could use a logging framework other than log4j, or you could run the application in a debugger.

Using an actual debugger is my choice. I use myEclipse workbech with Eclipse. It allows you to set breakpoints and step through. At the same time you can view all values, step into, step over, step to return...

Debuggers are very useful and I always use one for development. However released code tends to run in environments where you can't use a debugger, so it is no substitute for proper logging.
