When you say 'without writing any log framework', are you talking about 'not changing the code'?

If that is what you mean, look at jaspect. It can 'decorate' your classes where you can put your logging or system.out.print or whatever.

You may use Spring's AOP also (which can either use jaspect underneath, or Spring's own AOP).
 
I am displeased. You are no longer allowed to read this tiny ad:
