    How to read server.log/boot.log ?

    roberto roberto Novice

      I want to integrate in my j2ee application a console to read the jboss server.log and/or boot.log (jboss 4.x and 5.x).
      How can I implement it ?
      there is same example around ?
      using JMX or directly jboss API....
      I haven't found something like this in the jmx and web console

          You can open the file as a read-only file stream. Or were you looking for something else?

          I once had a servlet that opened the log files as read-only text streams and then displayed the last 100 or so lines to the user and let the user navigate through the log file.

            Hi Peter (and Merry Xmas!) and Thank you for you reply.

            I prefer to don't open directly myself log file.
            I prefer to call some jboss API in order to obtain log information.

            Open directly log file I need to know where log files are located, rollover policy and so on.

            But if this is the only way to have it, no problem.
            I prefer also to have a JMX or something like it because in the future I would like to build this log console inside my ear application connected to JBoss or WebSphere or NetWeaver ..... Maybe having a JMX can be more simple to implemement the right adapter
