Course Overview
Hi there, my name is Maaike van Putten, and welcome to my course Java Core Libraries: Java Log System. I'm a software developer and trainer at Bright Boost. In this course, we'll be dealing with logging in Java. Logging is the act of writing information about events and situations to a file or console. This information can contain errors, warnings, but also debug intel. The log is crucial for monitoring and troubleshooting your application. During this course, you'll learn how to log using the java.util.logging package, and you'll learn some best practices for logging. We'll work at a case of our imaginary client, Carved Rock Fitness, to start applying logging in an actual application right away. Some of the major topics include what is logging and when to use it, best practices for logging, how to get a logger, set levels and handlers, log formatters and filters, and how to use the LogManager and use a configuration file. By the end of this course, you should be comfortable applying logging to your own applications. And before beginning this course, you have to know the basics of Java. Let me help you get started logging with the java.util.logging package with my Java Core Libraries: Java Log System course, here at Pluralsight.
