public class: LogHandler [javadoc | source]

Direct Known Subclasses:

Log destination ( or channel ). This is the base class that will be extended by log handlers - tomcat uses util.qlog.QueueLogger, in future we'll use log4j or java.util.logger adapters. The base class writes to a (default) writer, and it can be used for very simple logging.
