Project overview

HOWL is a logger implementation providing features required by the OW2 JOTM project, with a public API that is generally usable by any Transaction Manager. HOWL uses unformatted binary logs to maximize performance and specifies a journalization API with methods necessary to support JOTM recovery operations.

HOWL is intended to be used for logging of temporary data such as XA transaction events. HOWL is not a replacement for traditional log kits such as LOG4J and Java SE Logging.
