Log4j Ported to PHP

By Deane Barker on January 28, 2004

log4php – log4j ported to PHP!: Log4j and Velocity were the only two things I liked about Java. Smarty can replace Velocity, and now Log4j is covered too.

Log4php is a php port of Log4j, the most popular Java logging framework…Supports configuration through xml and properties file… Supports File, RollingFile, DailyFile, Echo, Console, Mail, PEAR::Db, PHP error, Syslog or NT events and Socket appenders…Supports Simple, TTCC, Pattern, Html and Xml Layouts…

“Port” may be too strong a word, here. They essentially just duplicated an API in another language…but perhaps that’s the definition of a port?
