This is a multi-part tutorial, which will take you through:

  1. Installing beet in an existing Spring web application.
  2. Administering beet from a JMX console
  3. Processing beet logs with the beet-utils command line package

For this tutorial we assume:

  1. You already have a working instance of the Java 6 SDK installed
  2. You have administrative privileges on your system, such that you can install and run server software
  3. You are familiar with Java-based web application development in general (Servlet 2.4 and up), and Spring-based applications in particular (Spring 2 and up).
  4. You are comfortable with Java 5+ language features and SDK tools.
The User Guide (available at http://beet.sourceforge.net and in any beet release package) contains full instructions for configuring beet, with many options, details, and examples not covered here.  This document will take you through the installation on a very simple application before you decide to dive in on your own.
