Overall Satisfaction with Apache Log4j

We use log4j to manage logging in our applications and make it easy to customize logging levels in different environments and situations. It makes it easy for us to troubleshoot issues without having to make adjustments in the application itself. Without Log4j, we would have to recompile the application to be able to do further troubleshooting.
  • Integration with java.
  • Configure logging levels.
  • Customize logging contents.
  • Make it easier to adjust logging in running applications.
  • Ability to customize logging.
  • Integration with Java logging framework.
  • Integration with JBoss application server.
  • Faster troubleshooting.
  • Need to spend time on updates due to security holes.
The ability to customize logging levels and manage log files is superior to other products we have looked at; due to this we selected to go with log4j.

Log4j is perfect to use in applications where you suspect you have a need to troubleshoot the application in a running environment and don’t know in advance exactly which parts of the application you want to troubleshoot. It’s a bit unnecessary in really small applications since the extra dependency can cause more issues than benefits.
