LogDigger is an extension for Firefox and Firebug that collects Log4j log messages related to requested application URL and shows them in Firebug.
All you have to do is to put some LogDigger jar-Files into your /WEB-INF/lib and configure a special filter-mapping
LogDigger Servlet Filter org.logdigger.servlet.filter.LogDiggerServletFilter
for your webapplication. After that you have to install Firebug and the LogDigger Firefox extension. After restarting Firefox you should see LogDigger label next to the Firebug’s icon in the Firefox status bar. When LogDigger receives log messages the label changes to event counter (by log level) that you can click on to open log console.
If your code instruments Log4J logmessages, you can review them within your browser window. Perfect for development on remote instances!
LogDigger 0.2 is FREE for both personal and commercial use.
