Subject Re: writing logs on a separate server while the project as jar file
Date Tue, 25 Jan 2011 01:25:42 GMT

I am not using console output, its the latest version of stable log4j

The application is not deployed as a complete web application as this is
being used inside the processes of tibco. So the TIBCO processes used this
application to generate the query, by simply giving in the inputs and
considering the String output. I have implemented logger and the
configuration file resides inside the tibco server, not inside my Java
application. So I am fetching an instance of logger form the tibco server
but for this I have to write separate code in each Java class willing to
write logs somewhere in tibco server.

What exactly I need is something that is the standard way to write logs to a
server where there are many Java application are deployed as separate jar
file and is being used by the tibco processes.

Thanks for Replying.
Prashant Rajput.
