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.
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.
