Logback is a rewrite of log4j based on the lessons learned during the years.

Logback has a smaller memory footprint and is faster by a wide margin. It
much better error reporting capability and is generally more robust.

Logback has support for markers which enables capabilities not found
We will be documenting these capabilities in the near future.

Just as imporantly, logback`s access module supports Tomcat and Jetty. Thus,

many of the logging capabilites offered by the classic module are also
available for http access logging.

I hope this anwers your question,
