Logback is intended as a successor to the popular log4j project, and was designed by its founder. The basic architecture is sufficiently generic so as to apply under different circumstances. Logback is divided into three modules.
The Core module lays the groundwork for the other two modules. The Classic module can be assimilated to an improved version of log4j. It natively implements the SLF4J API so that you can readily switch back and forth between logback and other logging systems, such as log4j or JDK14 Logging.
The Access module integrates with Servlet containers to provide HTPP access log functionality. You can easily build your own modules on top of the Core module.
