Welcome to Log4JUnit

Log4JUnit aims to help the testing (using JUnit assertions and test cases) of legacy code that logs into log files using log4j, and is, appart from that, not very testable (due to missing sources, not testable design, etc).

This project started as the result of having to manually test our server software by looking at the log files de different servers produce. Due to the fact that human intervention in this testing area is very ardue and tiresome we came up with the idea of creating a framework based on JUnit (using log4j) to make assertions on the logs (appenders) produced.
