The following declaration:

private static Logger logger = Logger.getRootLogger();
In this declaration what is a Logger and logger?

and how come they are able to access the method getRootLogger() without creating the object?

Please clarify..

Logger ir a class. logger is instance of Logger.

Logger class may contain static methods that will be accessable without creating instance of class.
