Hello everybody, I'm facing a problem with my application.

I programmed, deploy and run a webservice in my tomcat server.

I programmed, deploy and run my client as well.

My last implementation was with log4j to include logging system to my application. Everything works fine, I use my own XML Layout and it saves a log for every day in xml format. e.g:


But the problem is that I want to retrieve information with a free log4j viewer, but I'm not sure if it could be possible because the logs files are located in the server and they're not stored locally.
I tried with chainsaw (Webstart) and I managed to read the logs locally, but no idea how to read them from a server.

Then I spent 1 whole day implementing a stand-alone application to read my logs. I also managed to read it locally, but now the problem is the same, how to read it from the server.

I even managed to test by uploading a file to a remote server and use my application to read it with the URL Class and URLConnection.

One thing is that I need to use a key to access the server (linux server with apache tomcat 6).

I've already posted something related to this, but now, I'm adding more information here.

Hope somebody could help me please, I'll be very grateful

Thanks in advance....

You can use OtrosLogViewer. It supports SSH key authorization: You can browse remote file systems (ssh/sftp, samba).
