Formats Python log messages as log4j XMLLayout XML

description

specifications

XMLLayout is a project that provides a Python logging formatter that formats log messages as XML, according to log4j's XMLLayout specification.

XMLLayout formatted log messages can be viewed and filtered within the Chainsaw application (see the example section below), part of the Java based log4j project.

This package also includes a RawSocketHandler -- like logging.handler.SocketHandler, but sends the raw log message over the socket instead of a pickled version. RawSocketHandler can be configured to send log messages to Chainsaw directly over a socket.

For example: to forward log messages to Chainsaw, if it were listening on localhost port 4448:

import logging
import xmllayout

handler = xmllayout.RawSocketHandler('localhost', 4448)
handler.setFormatter(xmllayout.XMLLayout())
logging.root.addHandler(handler)
