Enabling Request and Response logging in Jersey

I have been using Jersey as JAX-RS reference implementation for building REST services for last few days. And i wanted to enable logging so that it makes debugging easier. It seems that Jersey allows us to enable Request and Response logging and once you enable that it starts printing request and response info. In order to use that all you have to do is change web.xml to add LoggingFilter on both request and response like this

<!DOCTYPE web-app PUBLIC
 "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN"
 "http://java.sun.com/dtd/web-app_2_3.dtd" >

<web-app>
  <display-name>Archetype Created Web Application</display-name>
  <servlet>
    <servlet-name>Jersey Web Application</servlet-name>
    <servlet-class>com.sun.jersey.spi.container.servlet.ServletContainer</servlet-class>

    <init-param>
         <param-name>com.sun.jersey.spi.container.ContainerRequestFilters</param-name>
         <param-value>com.sun.jersey.api.container.filter.LoggingFilter</param-value>
     </init-param>
     <init-param>
         <param-name>com.sun.jersey.spi.container.ContainerResponseFilters</param-name>
         <param-value>com.sun.jersey.api.container.filter.LoggingFilter</param-value>
     </init-param>
   
 <init-param>
      <param-name>javax.ws.rs.Application</param-name>
      <param-value>com.webspherenotes.rest.ContactApplication</param-value>
    </init-param>
  
  </servlet>
  <servlet-mapping>
    <servlet-name>Jersey Web Application</servlet-name>
    <url-pattern>/rest/*</url-pattern>
  </servlet-mapping>

</web-app>
The com.sun.jersey.api.container.filter.LoggingFilter can be used to enable loggin on either request or response or both as i am doing in this case. Now if i hit a REST service by making GET call to http://localhost:9000/ManageContact/rest/contact/5 then the service returns JSON reso If you look into the generated log you can see both the request and response being printed like this

Thanks for showing us you good examples on response logging codes. Technically, you coding methods are really good to obtain. I have also found some useful terms in your blog that helps me develop a good learning in coding.
