The team at Comcast Interactive Media is putting the final touches to an internally developed tool we use for logging events from Flex applications. The application is built on top of the Flex framework and runs as an installable AIR application. Best of all, we will be releasing it under the MIT open source license. A much more detailed blog entry about logbook’s features will be published soon but here is a quick screengrab of the application (click to open in a new window):
Stay tuned ;).
Update: LogBook has been released and can now be downloaded at http://code.google.com/p/cimlogbook/

How will it work ? an installed AIR application that will listen to other AIR apps loggers ? LocalConnection ? or a SWC ?
Anyway, good idea
The Logbook application listens on configurable LocalConnections to your other applications (AIR or Flash/Flex running within browsers). In your code, you have to include a new LoggingTarget using a class we will provide as well. We are releasing a sample app as well that should make things clearer.
Any updates on this project? Can it be downloaded or viewed any where?
Sipho I just added an update to this post but yes, LogBook can now be downloaded from the link mentioned in the post update above
