Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Technical Overview

Configuring the Logging Service

When OpenSSO Enterprise starts or when any logging configuration data is changed using the administration console, the Logging Service configuration data is loaded (or reloaded) into the Logging Service. This data includes the log message format, maximum log size, and the number of history files. Authenticated and authorized entities (for example, an application) can then use the Client SDK to access the Logging Service features from a local or remote server. The Client SDK uses an XML over HTTP layer to send logging requests to the Logging Service on the server where OpenSSO Enterprise is installed.
