Re: Can anyone say how Log4J is better than Debuggers?

they serve entirely different purposes. you use logging to catch output of the program as its running in its normal environment (the production system, the client site, etc.). If a problem turns up, you check the logs; hopefully you get an idea what went wrong. THEN you break out the debugger to find the logic problem in the code and fix it.
