Hi all,
We have written a standalone swing application that uses Log4j to create some log files on the client's machine.
Now, we are thinking about distributing this application on the web. We were successful in having it run using Java web start 1.2.
We have the following problem:
These logs are no longer useful since each client downloads the jar file on his/her local disk and then runs the application locally and as a result each user writes to his/her own logs on his/her local disk. We are basically looking for a way to have a centralized log. This way all the user logs are getting written to a single log file (on the server?). We were wondering if there would be any good way of doing this. If we can accomplish this, then we do not have to even ask the users for full permissions to their local machine.
Any thoughts on this?

Hi, and welcome to Javaranch.
Please do not post the same question in multiple forums as it just makes it harder for us to help you.
Since Simon has already responded to your other thread here I am closing this one.
Thank you.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
