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.
OtrosLogViewer (OLV) is software for analyzing an application's logs and stack traces. It loads logs from remote servers using ftp, sftp, ssh, samba and other supported filesystems, listening on a socket, or connection to a Log4j SocketHubAppender. Logs can be gzipped, and OLV will decompress them on the fly. Many log formats are supported (JDK logging, Log4j XML, and custom patterns). OLV allows log highlighting. Automatic log highlighting is based on string matches, regular expressions, or custom Java code. Notes can be added to log events. Display of message details can be customized by message formatters and a colorizer (i.e., formating SOAP request and highlighting XML syntax). OLV can be extended by plugins (filters, log parsers, log event markers, message detail formatters, and colorizers).
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.
