Hello Oliver

It's a few years ago and I cannot remember quite exactly...
What kind of logging framework are you using? I used Log4J back then.

If I remember right, I didn't wrote a formatter; forget what I said
before... :)

I tried it, but then I put all the logic in a custom appender. This
appender created the json represantations as also sent them over a
message queue to mdbean on a glassfish application server...

I hope that I'll find the time to reimplement it. It was a nice - Well,
at least in my opinion - solution to log into a database, which enabled
me to use all the nice sql-stuff to seachr for entries.

Best regards

Alex

Hello Oliver

I'm sorry for the late answer; we had some trouble at work with a
project - CEO-Priority...

Unfortunately I don't know much about java.util.logging. I never used
it. so I'm afraid that I will not be of much help. Sorry... :(

Best regards

Alex
