Using java.util.logging.Logger for Application Log Messages

Applications that use the GemFire XD JDBC peer driver can log messages through the java.util.Logger logging API. You can obtain a handle to the java.util.Logger logger object by entering com.pivotal.gemfirexd after the application connects to the GemFire XD cluster with the peer driver.

For example:
import java.util.logging.Logger;
 Logger logger = Logger.getLogger("com.pivotal.gemfirexd");
 logger.info("Connected to a GemFire XD system");
