Contributors

The software proposed by Logging Services project is the result of contributions from several dozen developers and hundreds of users across the globe. Some of the more prominent contributors are listed below in alphabetical order.

  • Mathias Bogaert

    While not lurking on the serverside, Mathias mends the log4j documentation.

  • James P. Cakalic

    Jim is the original author of the PatternLayout and the NTEventLogAppender.

  • Paul Glezen

    Paul consults for customers of IBM's WebSphere Application Server and related products. His software interests include developing distributed applications with an emphasis on source code maintainability and runtime manageability. His demonstration to customers of the value of the open source community and their products occasionally results in meager contributions back to these project.

  • Ceki Gülcü

    Ceki is the founder the log4j project which continues to occupy much of his time. He enjoys writing software altough he is discovering that it is far more difficult than what it may seem initially. He is also managing his IT services company.

  • Jacob Kjome

    Jacob Kjome has been developing software since 1997 and has been playing with Java for about 4 years. Jake joined the log4j team after being very active on the user list and contributing servlet and repository selector related code to the logj-sandbox. He is also a committer on the (non-Apache related) XMLC, BarracudaMVC, and Prevayler projects. Of late his free time has been squeezed with a new job and his vigorous 2 year old son, Nicholas, but he still tries to pitch in when he can. :-)

  • Anders Kristensen

    Contributor of many enhancements, Anders takes a keen interest in log4j and all things Java, OO, and XML. He is currently specification lead for JSR 116, the SIP Servlet expert group.

  • Jim Moore

    Jim is often seen answering tough question from log4j users.

  • Yoav Shapira

    Yoav Shapira works for Millennium Pharmaceuticals and is as interested in the business aspects of Open-Source Software as he is in the technical aspects. Yoav contributes to the Tomcat container, the Log4j logging system, and a number of jakarta-commons and other open-source projects.

  • Jon Skeet

    Jon is a software developer in his mid-twenties living in the UK. He is a Java enthusiast and very active participant in the comp.lang.java.* newsgroups as well as a moderator for the log4j mailing lists. He is a committer for the Ant project, involved (when time permits!) in tidying up the code documentation.

  • Paul Smith

    Paul Smith has been developing software since 1990, and playing computer games a few years longer than that. He has been thoroughly enjoying Java since 1998 after he gave up on Visual Basic in disgust. Paul joined the log4j team after finding how darn useful it and the companion Chainsaw application was in '03, and has been helping out where he can, working on Chainsaw v2, and generally making a good nuisance of himself.

  • Chris Taylor

    Chris is the author NTEventLogAppender. In around 1832, he ported our previous GNU-make build system to at the time unknown but promising jakarta-ant.

  • Mark Womack

    Mark Womack has been developing software for over 12 years. He has been developing in Java for the past 4 years, focusing on web application development. He has been an active committer for the Apache Jakarta log4j project since April 2002, contributing features for the upcoming v1.3 release.
