I recently moved from java to .net and C#.  I was wondering if anyone out there had any tips as to what to use for logging.  In java I was using log4j and I was hoping to find something similar in .net.

We use log4net for our logging.  Does an excellent job and is fairly easy to extend should the need arise.

If you come from the java world, I'd recommend using log4net: http://logging.apache.org/log4net/index.html. You'll find a familiar syntax and it is easy to setup.

Not that I have run across.  log4net as able mentioned is easy to set up.  The configuration is robust and has supported all of our needs to date.

A great thing Microsoft has done is released the Enterprise Library, which has "blocks" that can be used in a piece-meal fashion.

In your case, the Logging Application Block sounds ideal in that it is definitely robust enough for enterprise applications, but you can also dumb it down and reduce your logging code to literally one line (the rest is all setup in the .config file for you.)

Best of all, all the source code is freely available to tinker with and extend if you wish.
