Interface Log


public interface Log

A simple logging interface abstracting logging APIs. In order to be instantiated successfully by LogFactory, classes that implement this interface must have a constructor that takes a single String parameter representing the "name" of this Log.

The six logging levels used by Log are (in order):

  1. trace (the least serious)
  2. debug
  3. info
  4. warn
  5. error
  6. fatal (the most serious)
The mapping of these log levels to the concepts used by the underlying logging system is implementation dependent. The implemention should ensure, though, that this ordering behaves as expected.

Performance is often a logging concern. By examining the appropriate property, a component can avoid expensive operations (producing information to be logged).

For example,

    if (log.isDebugEnabled()) {
        ... do something expensive ...
        log.debug(theResult);
    }
 

Configuration of the underlying logging system will generally be done external to the Logging APIs, through whatever mechanism is supported by that system.

Method Detail

isDebugEnabled

boolean isDebugEnabled()

Is debug logging currently enabled?

Call this method to prevent having to perform expensive operations (for example, String concatenation) when the log level is more than debug.


isErrorEnabled

boolean isErrorEnabled()

Is error logging currently enabled?

Call this method to prevent having to perform expensive operations (for example, String concatenation) when the log level is more than error.


isFatalEnabled

boolean isFatalEnabled()

Is fatal logging currently enabled?

Call this method to prevent having to perform expensive operations (for example, String concatenation) when the log level is more than fatal.


isInfoEnabled

boolean isInfoEnabled()

Is info logging currently enabled?

Call this method to prevent having to perform expensive operations (for example, String concatenation) when the log level is more than info.


isTraceEnabled

boolean isTraceEnabled()

Is trace logging currently enabled?

Call this method to prevent having to perform expensive operations (for example, String concatenation) when the log level is more than trace.


isWarnEnabled

boolean isWarnEnabled()

Is warn logging currently enabled?

Call this method to prevent having to perform expensive operations (for example, String concatenation) when the log level is more than warn.
