NagiosAppender is a pure Java implementation of a Log4j appender that allows the developer/administrator to send log records to Nagios via the NCSA server (using the push model). It provides a simple solution for Nagios administrators whose only alternative is to implement a polling function against against the output of a standard Log4j appender. The log4j configuration file provides for user-specific mappings between Log4j levels and Nagios levels. The configuration file also allows the user to select whether to set the Nagios 'service' and 'host' programmatically via Log4j MDC, or via the config file. Later releases support XOR encryption.
jmxtrans is effectively the missing connector between JMX and whatever logging or graphing package that you can dream up. jmxtrans is very powerful tool that reads JSON configuration files specifying servers/ports and JMX domains/attributes and then outputs the data in whatever format you want via special "Writer" objects that you can code up yourself. It does this with a very efficient engine design that will scale to querying literally thousands of machines. The core engine is pretty solid and writers are included for cacti/rrdtool, graphite, and stdout.
Synapse is an ESB engine and XML router built completely on open standards. It is a mediation framework for XML messages and Web services that allows messages flowing through, into, or out of an organization to be mediated, including aspects such as logging, service lookup, performance mediation, versioning, failover, monitoring, fault management, and tracing.
The DPML SDK is a management platform for Java-based component development, resource management, and deployment. It is composed of the Transit resource management layer, the Depot multi-project build system, the Metro component management runtime engine, and the Station application management console.
tadedon is a set of utilities that form a foundation for applications written with one of the many Java frameworks, such as GWT, GIN, Guice, Google App Engine, commons-configuration, and many others. It lets you specify the default configuration of your application and upgrade it automatically on each new release. It can redirect all java.util.logging to slf4j and easily configure logback. It can bind application configuration in a Guice module. It supports @PostConstruct and @PreDestroy annotations (JSR 250) in Guice applications. It lets you annotate your methods with @Transactional annotation. It supports Guice injector stage in your Web application. It lets you test your Guice managed servlets and filters without needing a real servlet container. It lets you use Guice Matchers for matching super class, interface, and type literal annotations. It can inject event bus to your GWT applications with the help of GIN.
Simple Log is a small library that does logging very simply and requires you to do almost nothing (other than actually logging) to get log output to happen. It is much simpler to use than a logging framework, especially in terms of configuration. It doesn't attempt to solve every logging problem in one package, but contains enough features to be a viable alternative for most applications that need logging. This tool will handle the logging needs of most small- to large-sized projects, but with an almost non-existent learning curve.
