jLogMan displays the current state of java.util.logging's Loggers and Handlers in an "Outline" (a tree table widget). With it you can create new Loggers and Handlers and change logging levels. There are Actions to save/restore logging configurations to/from files and an option to apply the configuration at startup. It can be dropped into any swing app (tested with jre 1.6 and 1.7); there is a NetBeans plugin. See the wiki for details and docs.
