12.7. RESTEasy Logging

12.7.1. About JAX-RS Web Service Logging

RESTEasy supports logging via java.util.logging, log4j, and slf4j. The framework is chosen via the following algorithm:
  1. If log4j is in the application's classpath, log4j will be used.
  2. If slf4j is in the application's classpath, slf4j will be used.
  3. java.util.logging is the default if neither log4j or slf4j is in the classpath.
  4. If the servlet context param resteasy.logger.type is set to java.util.logging, log4j, or slf4j will override this default behavior
To configure logging for a JAX-RS application, refer here: Section 12.7.2, “Configure a Log Category in the Management Console”.
