Hello all, I have a question pertaining to logging. I have an application that has to log the search parameters, number or results and time it took to perform the search in XML format to a table in the database. We are currently using WebSphere with JDK 1.4.2 and I want to come up with something that will allow me to log the above but not have to make the transaction "wait" while it is being done. I know in JDK 1.5 there is the concurrency packages, but in 1.4 what is my best bet for doing this? Is it spawning a thread which I thought was not a good thing inside of my EJB layer. Any help would be most appreciated.
