We have a requirment which requires to have an Handler that is extended from Java logging and allows to have the files rotated on daily basis.

Currently Java util logging do have the support of rotation based on file size by using File Handler. It doesnt support rotation on daily basis. http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6350749

So , what we are looking is for such an appender that allows daily rotation . We would like to write such handler and which is the appropriate handler to extend for ... StreamHandler or FileHandler ? And other questions are , is there way we can configure 2 different files for a single handler say FileHandler say for eg , we would like some kind of messages need to be captured in one file and other messages in other file.

Would appreciate for any comments.

on a side note, you might want to consider changing your signature.

We are exploring other alternatives by extending Java logging framework instead of using 3rd party frameworks ...

Why reinvent the wheel when the current wheels are just working fine? What's one single JAR file that is even allowed to be used in commercial products (as per the Apache License Log4J is released under)?
