Thanks for the feedback - 

You can download a Chainsaw bundle that includes a .bat and .sh file from the 'Unix/Dos standalone'
link right below the Web Start link on the page.

There's a Mac DMG available there as well.

Regarding Web Start - Web Start is a built-in way to ensure you have the latest version of

The first time you launch the app via Web Start, you should be prompted if you want it to
create an icon on your desktop.  It will download our jars, create the icon and launch Chainsaw.

Each time you launch Chainsaw from the Web Start link or the icon, Web Start will check to
see if there is a new version, download any updates if needed and launch Chainsaw.

Web Start has been included as a part of the Java installation since 1.4.

If you are using Chainsaw from a machine that has internet access, the Web Start link is the
easiest way to get started (one click to launch it).  Otherwise, the bundles are the way to

I've just discovered Chainsaw and would love to get this new 
release working for me. I see from the archive that you've asked 
for comments, so here goes.

This software is just what I want right now. Immediately I'm put 
off though because of the web page it sems to live at: 
http://logging.apache.org/log4j/docs/chainsaw.html. It all looks 
a bit of a mess and I couldn't find out how to download and 
install the thing without "Webstart", something I want to avoid 
having to learn about right now. I'd be happy to build the thing 
from source if I could get hold of it. Maybe it's all too early 
or I've got the wrong end of the stick.

So, how can I install Chainsaw v2 without Webstart?

Also, the first thing I see when I run Chainsaw is a popup I 
don't understand. Not sure what's needed here; I was just giving 
my first impressions.
