We have web applications that use java.util.logging. Is there a way to change the logging level per application? I realize I can change the logging VM leve wide by changing the JRE\lib\logging.properties. Is there a way we can just add a file like log4j. When we deploy we don't want to restart the JVM, just the application. Then we can change the file and restart the application instead of the whole server.
Thanks,
Tom

Afraid not. It looks like the idea "logging centralized at the JVM level" is one of the design features of java.util.logging.

So yeah, using log4j is a good idea if you want your logging centralized at the web application level. But the downside is you will need to change all your code to use the log4j classes instead of the java.util.logging classes.
