Hello JavaRanchers,

I want to use a logging utility for my web application. Although I have used, Log4j and I know it very popular. I wanted to check, if there is some more advanced open source logging utility.

I was searching on google, and i found a website having links to various logging utilities.

Link : Various Logging Tools

Could anyone please give some input on an efficient logging utility?

Many Thanks for your reply.

Kind Regards,
Hardik

Log4J is pretty much accepted as the standard. You can use Commons logging from Apache as a wrapper which allows you to plugin any logger you like.
