Alfresco 2.2 adds support for JSR-160, providing a new JMX interface for system administrators to access Alfresco via a standard JMX console that support JMX Remoting. With JSR-160 support, sys admins can now change log levels, enable or disable file-servers all without having to stop and restart the Alfresco server.
As of Alfresco version 2.2 (post BETA) each module can have its own log4j.properties file, which is placed in the same directory as module.properties. Therefore, you can control the logging levels of classes within your module without having to modify the main log4j.properties file.
