Complement business rule debugging in IBM Operational Decision Manager with a logging framework
Logging and tracing play an integral role in problem diagnosis and understanding the flow of many applications. Common logging methods such as adding print statements placed through the code are often used to trace the flow of an application or a component during development. However this method falls short on scalability and flexibility by making it difficult to dynamically and easily change and control the amount and destination of logged information. A logging framework, such as the logging APIs available in Java SE or Apache Log4J, provide feature rich, flexible logging mechanisms that aid with debugging and tracing. This tutorial explains how to use a Java Logging framework in IBM Operational Decision Manager (ODM) to assist with debugging and tracing business rule projects.
