As a developer looking for a more detailed reference/guide to technical usage and programming practices, this book falls short. My focus was log4j, and I found that most of the information is freely available from apache. No real value was added here. I expected at least an in depth compare-contrast between log4j and jdk logging, but this section was very terse. What would be a nice add would be a technical reference that would be one stop shop for syntax. The book didn't even provide a PatternLayout key of codes for logging items, that would be useful.
What we really need is a practical bridge between javadocs and this book, which is a high level academic overview.
I should have just gotten "The complete log4j manual", but I thought this might have been more extensive. I was wrong.

I bought this book based on the review of Thomas Paul, who has supposedly read it. If he had read this book then he would still be suffering migranes like I am. Without a doubt the worse book on logging I have read. I really wanted to get into this book and write some of my own logging programs. My advice to anyone who wants to do the same is to go to the Jakarta website where they have much better documentation and its free! Save your money. don't buy this book unless you like to read to help you sleep.

This book covers the two most popular logging APIS, the one built in to JDK 1.4 and the Apache log4j. The book starts with a brief introduction to logging and why we should care about it. The rest of the book is divided into two parts, each discussing one of the two APIs. The final chapter covers best practices and a brief comparison of the two APIs. The sections on the logging APIs are divided into two parts, the first discussing the features of the API and the next discussing how to create your own custom components to extend the API.
The book is very well written. The author does a nice job of combining the discussion with code examples to make the topics clear. He uses UML diagrams appropriately to help the reader understand how a log request flows through the many classes. He clearly explains each of the classes in the logging frameworks and how to properly use them. The discussion of log4j ends with a chapter on the log tag library written for use with JSPs.
Overall this is a very good book. If you are doing no more than very basic logging then this book is probably a lot more information than you need. But if you want to incorporate logging into your development projects in more than just a very basic way or if you are interested in comparing in detail the two APIs, you will find this book useful.
