Subject [jira] Created: (LOGGING-110) Implement a Level class and a generic log method in Log
Date Fri, 17 Nov 2006 16:53:37 GMT
Implement a Level class and a generic log method in Log

                 Key: LOGGING-110
             Project: Commons Logging
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 1.0.4
            Reporter: Sebastiaan van Erk

The Log API does not have a generic log method and there is no generic Level class. Since
the levels which commons logging provides are fixed and since it would not break backwards
compatibiliy I would like to suggest that these are added. To be more specific, I would like
to see the following methods added:

 void 	log(Level level, Object message)
           Log a message with the specified log level.

 void 	log(Level level, Object message, Throwable t)
           Log a message and exception with the specified log level.

 boolean isEnabled(Level level)
           Is the specified logging level currently enabled?

As an extra feature of the level class one could have string and integer conversions to and
from log levels.

These features would allow one to use commons logging in more complex situations without have
to rely on specific logging implementations.
