Gotta explain what Jars are too! </sarcasm> Joking aside, Java is a very complex and
deep platform. For casual developers, why not just use System.out.print? Do you really need
a rich framework such as log4j for a casual java program? Just thinking about the simplest
option for you here...

(called CH-19 Sweet), which resembles capsaicin, provides similar positive metabolic effects

So you're saying you'd like the docs to include some basic introductory
info on what a class path is, what system properties are, and how to
configure them all? Sounds like a good idea considering log4j is such a
fundamental library that I wouldn't expect all users to know that sort of
thing by default.
