But all you need is some kind of "jcat" or
whatever it will be called to
dump the human-readable version out of the database to stdout. Then all
your text tools will do exactly as good as with your plain text logfile.
Yes, that solves interoperability with text tools.
But then you have the other case that has been pointed already: what
if the binary log gets corrupted and jcat can't read it?
Text logs allow the human behind the keyboard some recourse left:
guess what's wrong with the log, try to make something of it
regardless of corruption. Binary logs don't, unless you code very
In essence, I believe the binary part is totally unnecessary and risk-prone.
