Like any other application, our application also logs exception (with other information) in a log file. Watching those log files in every now & then is very boring thing.
I was thinking if I can develop a monitoring tool which can look into logs, find exceptions which we are interested in (not all exception are serious, only some of them are of interest to us) & show them on desktop (alert sort of).
Following are things that program will do:
1. Looks into log file in every x minutes.
2. Reads information b/w last lookup time (when it ran for last time) to current time.
3. Looks for exceptions which we are interested in.
4. Show them in some form (Java Swing can be used, or mails/SMS).
