Hi Tim,

The Logger class has a way of checking the level first.

First put this in your instance variables:

    private static final Logger logger = Logger.getLogger("my.package.MyClass");

    private final boolean debug = logger.isDebugEnabled();

Then put this in your method:

        if (this.debug)
            logger.debug(new String("test"));

Hope this helps.

I am writing a Log Utility to check the log level first before creating a string object. For
example, if my log level is INFO, and I call:

log.debug(new String("test"));

It will still instantiate the String object even thought it doesn't log anything.

So I would like to write an Utility to check the level first, if the log level is lower, then
I don't have to instantiate the object and just skip it.
Anybody knows what is the easy way to do that?
