Overview ( 5 min)
Ekke gives you a short overview about different ways to log inside OSGI applications.
Developing Enterprise Business Applications you're not alone in a perfect designed OSGI world - you have to integrate 3rdParty bundles using different logging frameworks. Many of these bundles originally are not developed to be used in OSGI, but in the end all should run smoothly together.
Learn how to solve common problems - per ex. where to place configuration files
Live Demo (15 min)
Ekke demonstrates how to bridge the barriers between logging using OSGI Services and Logging Frameworks like Log4J, SLF4J, Commons Logging.
You'll see how to start bundles in the right way and how Declarative Services (Equinox / OSGI) can help listening to OSGI LogReaders.
Monitoring, Event handling and Log Servers are important if you're working in the domain of enterprise applications - get some hints how this can be done.
