ADF Logging

Most people use Log4J for their logging. There are a few others, like Commons Logging, SLF4J, or the default Java Logging API. But if you're working with Oracle's Application Development Framework, there is another option as well: ADF Logging.

ADF Logging is a logging mechanism, embedded in the ADF framework. It wraps the Java Logging API, but throws in a few extra methods and some JDeveloper and (Weblogic) Enterprise Manager features.

A thorough guide on how to use it can be found on Duncan Mill's blog. A 15 minute introduction presentation is also available.
