Eric Spiegelberg has written Log4Ajax , an article with corresponding demo code for logging ajax applications. Eric’s article builds upon an earlier, simpler system for logging from Joshua Gitlin’s article Errors and Ajax.
He also talks about some possible improvements, like filter levels for client and server and a queue to keep your server from getting hammered by debug messages. An opportunity for some open source development, perhaps (although I didn’t see mention of the license terms anywhere).
JSLog does not have the server side component, and Andre explains why he left it out:
[I] decided to stick with a transient browser display for two reasons: 1) it met all of my debugging needs in that form; 2) introduction of a server-side component complicates the deployment significantly, and reduces the portability of the tool.
