Hi, Krishna.
Can you please recheck how this logging will work when jab code will 
print something in parallel. As far as I understand 
libwindowsaccessbridge is loaded by the JAWS and libjavaaccessbridge by 
java, is it possibly that the log file will be garbled because of two 
libraries will print in parallel?
