Take care when logging via email!

ONJava.com: Reporting Application Errors by Email talks about logging your application errors via an smtp appender for log4j or java.util.logging. Please consider what I wrote ealier on about the 10500 Messages in my inbox.

What did I learn?

  • Do not use an active notification if the error is permanent.
  • Do not report the same error again and again.
  • Write some log4j appender that would filter or aggregate the messages in this case. ;-)
