Subject [jira] [Created] (LOG4J2-138) org.apache.logging.log4j.Logger lacks some log(Level, String, ...) method
Date Sat, 29 Dec 2012 18:40:12 GMT
Pavel Trka created LOG4J2-138:

             Summary: org.apache.logging.log4j.Logger lacks some log(Level, String, ...) method
                 Key: LOG4J2-138
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-138
             Project: Log4j 2
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: API
    Affects Versions: 2.0-beta3
            Reporter: Pavel Trka

I dont know if Im not alone with this problem but I encountered blocker in Log4j2 usage (blocker
for me personally of course ;) ). Im posting it as Wish issue as it is not a bug.

Im trying to switch from Log4j 1.2 to 2 and it looked like piece of cake but - I have developped
some logging facade or wrapper solution around log4j 1.2, it's something like simple SLF4J,
it was necessary because my project logging needs are pretty special and also I wanted to
have the option to easilly switch logging frameworks. 

Problem is that most of my logging code is in own abstract class that is common for all implementations,
concrete implementations are extending this base and have to implement only few methods like
log(Level, String) and isLevelLoggable(Level) etc.. The advantage is that implementations
are very simple to write with minimal amount of copy/paste programming.

Problem is that the new org.apache.logging.log4j.Logger iface does not contain any log(...)
method and Im stuck. 

I have only 2 options - I can use org.apache.logging.log4j.core.Logger class without using
iface but I dont want that for obvious reasons - I want to do it properly. Second option is
to implement all info(), debug(),trace(),.... methods in my implementation class but I dont
wanna do that because that is exactly what I wanted to avoid in my facade solution. 

I know it's my wish only, I dont know if this change had some good reasons but Im voting for
adding some log() method to Logger iface ;) The same thing applies for missing getLevel()
method but I already solved this one easilly so it's not my priority.
