Logging from a Java app to a JSP page

I am currently working on an application.  This application will be on a server of mine.  Users will use this application and they will be able to see a log of what is going on inside of a jsp page.  So, they are running an app, they go to this jsp page, and a log appears of what is going on inside the application.

Can anyone help me get started with this?

Hi
   You want to have an Error Log or Usage Log. I advise you to make use of log4j.

you want to display the log in the JSP?

well whether you use your own logging or log4j.. there is a file that is written to.

make your JSP read and display that file's contents.

You can add a meta refresh header to reload the page every 10 seconds or so.. to simulate tailling.

Thank you, cheekycj.

midavis logged in 4/23/02, after this was updated and I'd like to give midavis a few more days to respond here and decide.  If nothing by next week, we'll split points.

midavis ended this primary question with "Can anyone help me get started with this? " ... has logged in since the request was posted and did not respond.  I have processed the point split award today, since I'm taking a few days off.

If additional needs are communicated, please respond.

Points for cheekycj -> http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qShow.jsp?qid=20293696

Thank you both very much for helping midavis get started here.
