Tired of System.out.println()?

Hi all,

Case you are tired of writing debug messages, which you can only see by running the application on an emulator, but what you really need to know is what is going on the real device. Since there is no debug console on the device, you should take a look at this interesting article by Vikram Goyal. He gives us good tips on how to write an effective logging and monitoring library for our applications.

The part that I liked the most from this article is SMS logger. It provides a good strategy to report problems that may occur on the user's environment, which we have no longer control. We could set this type of log, only for critical issues, as the article demonstrates. It would be a handful feature for a continuous application's enhancement.

See you in the next post...
