Re: what is log4j



log4j is a logging framework written in Java.The file is a configuration file which has some properties defined in the form of key-value pairs. This log4j will log all kind of logs that include custom log levels and standard log levels. Custom log levels can be configured based on our requirement either it can be configured in code level or configuration file.
