org.apache.log4j.jdbc.JDBCAppender seems to be the place to start.

Or SyslogAppender, with a centralized syslog server writing to a
database, but support for a good syslog/database bridge is somewhat
lacking. The specs for the relatively new rsyslog say it supports a
database backend, but some accounts I've read say that the rsyslog
system as a whole is still a bit raw. I have not used it myself. Not
log4j related, but I use syslog-ng with a mysql backend, but I have
not been pleased with the un-refined method used to get syslog records
into the database.
