Subject [jira] Updated: (LOGGING-110) Implement a Level class and a generic log method in Log
Date Wed, 03 Jan 2007 01:18:27 GMT


Simon Kitching updated LOGGING-110:

        Fix Version/s: 2.0
    Affects Version/s:     (was: 1.0.4)

As there appears to be no enthusiasm for pushing this into the current release, assign for
consideration in 2.0

>                 URL:
>             Project: Commons Logging
>          Issue Type: New Feature

> 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.
