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:
- If log4j is in the application's classpath, log4j will be used.
- If slf4j is in the application's classpath, slf4j will be used.
- java.util.logging is the default if neither log4j or slf4j is in the classpath.
- 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”.
