Overall Satisfaction with Apache Log4j

We are using the Log4j library in all our applications for logging all applications logs with multiple levels, whether it's from error info or debug level. These logs will be to search, and analyze and debug the application on the production level, and we can easily trace out if we encounter any issues in production.


  • Logger hierarchy.
  • Inheritance the level.
  • Appenders and layout.
  • Ease on configuration.


  • Fixed the vulnerability which is reported which affect many big brand.
  • There should be security check to check all vulnerability.
  • Layout and Appenders.
  • Integration with application server.
  • Cloud enabled.
  • Advance filter support for data ,marker and other component event.
  • Good logging tools we can integrate with minimal resource consumption.
  • Ease of understanding.
  • Plugin play component Architecture.
  • Advance filter support can be used to filter all types of logs and events, which can be further analyzed.
I haven't used any other software for logging from starting of my career. I am using this one, and I think I don't need to explore any other as this provides me with all thing that fulfilled all my use cases.

Do you think Apache Log4j delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Apache Log4j's feature set?


Did Apache Log4j live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Apache Log4j go as expected?


Would you buy Apache Log4j again?


There is multiple reasons. All types are logging messages support not only string msg. We can use parametrized variables for logging Support advance filter for logging like (Data, Markers, Regular Expression) Support Plugin Architecture (We just use the dependency and Layout configuration with minimal config, and this will start to work) Integration support with application server Could enable.
