Class LoggerFactory


  • public final class LoggerFactory
    extends Object
    The LoggerFactory is a utility class producing Loggers for various logging APIs, most notably for log4j, logback and JDK 1.4 logging. Other implementations such as NOPLogger and SimpleLogger are also supported.

    LoggerFactory is essentially a wrapper around an ILoggerFactory instance bound with LoggerFactory at compile time.

    Please note that all methods in LoggerFactory are static.

    • Method Detail

      • getLogger

        public static Logger getLogger​(String name)
        Return a logger named according to the name parameter using the statically bound ILoggerFactory instance.
        Parameters:
        name - The name of the logger.
        Returns:

      • getLogger

        public static Logger getLogger​(Class<?> clazz)
        Return a logger named corresponding to the class passed as parameter, using the statically bound ILoggerFactory instance.

        In case the the clazz parameter differs from the name of the caller as computed internally by SLF4J, a logger name mismatch warning will be printed but only if the slf4j.detectLoggerNameMismatch system property is set to true. By default, this property is not set and no warnings will be printed even in case of a logger name mismatch.

        Parameters:
        clazz - the returned logger will be named after clazz
        Returns:
        logger
