This Java tip illustrates an example of a logging program. A logger class is provided by Java that facilitates this logging functionality. Thus, developer needs to create a log object and then further use it to log the message. Log records are processed by the handles of the logger.

    import java.util.logging.*;
    package com.mycompany;
    public class BasicLogging {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
            // Get a logger; the logger is automatically created if
            // it doesn't already exist
            Logger log = Logger.getLogger("com.mycompany.BasicLogging");
            // Different messages are logged at different severity levels
            log.severe("severe message");
            log.warning("warning message");
  "info message");
            log.config("config message");
            log.fine("fine level one message");
            log.finer("fine level two message");
            log.finest("fine level three message");
