You can create a custom object in Salesforce.com which is the database table. Then you write your message to this custom object/table in Salesforce.com using Apex, SOAP calls, etc.

 

You wouldn't need an external datastore.

Natively no. However you could create a custom object and write your log contents to that object. You would need to ensure that the appropriate profiles have rights to it.

 

Good luck

ok can you provide me some links or sample examples to acheive that log file by setting into an Apex object??

The process is that you would create a new custom object with the fields you would like for your log (eg errorMessage, processType, location, sverity, etc.). And then everytime you catch an error or warning, parse the error and insert a new object into your error log table.
