Class LogFactory

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.commons.logging.LogFactory

public abstract class LogFactory
extends java.lang.Object

Factory for creating Log instances, with discovery and configuration features similar to that employed by standard Java APIs such as JAXP.

IMPLEMENTATION NOTE - This implementation is heavily based on the SAXParserFactory and DocumentBuilderFactory implementations (corresponding to the JAXP pluggability APIs) found in Apache Xerces.

Constant Field Values

factories

protected static java.util.Hashtable factories
The previously constructed LogFactory instances, keyed by the ClassLoader with which it was created.

Constructor Detail

LogFactory

protected LogFactory()
Protected constructor that is not available for public use.

Method Detail

getAttribute

public abstract java.lang.Object getAttribute(java.lang.String name)
Return the configuration attribute with the specified name (if any), or null if there is no such attribute.

Parameters:
name - Name of the attribute to return

getAttributeNames

public abstract java.lang.String[] getAttributeNames()
Return an array containing the names of all currently defined configuration attributes. If there are no such attributes, a zero length array is returned.


getInstance

public abstract Log getInstance(java.lang.Class clazz)
                         throws LogConfigurationException
Convenience method to derive a name from the specified class and call getInstance(String) with it.

Parameters:
clazz - Class for which a suitable Log name will be derived
Throws:
LogConfigurationException - if a suitable Log instance cannot be returned

getInstance

public abstract Log getInstance(java.lang.String name)
                         throws LogConfigurationException

Construct (if necessary) and return a Log instance, using the factory's current set of configuration attributes.

NOTE - Depending upon the implementation of the LogFactory you are using, the Log instance you are returned may or may not be local to the current application, and may or may not be returned again on a subsequent call with the same name argument.

Parameters:
name - Logical name of the Log instance to be returned (the meaning of this name is only known to the underlying logging implementation that is being wrapped)
Throws:
LogConfigurationException - if a suitable Log instance cannot be returned

release

public abstract void release()
Release any internal references to previously created Log instances returned by this factory. This is useful environments like servlet containers, which implement application reloading by throwing away a ClassLoader. Dangling references to objects in that class loader would prevent garbage collection.


removeAttribute

public abstract void removeAttribute(java.lang.String name)
Remove any configuration attribute associated with the specified name. If there is no such attribute, no action is taken.

Parameters:
name - Name of the attribute to remove

setAttribute

public abstract void setAttribute(java.lang.String name,
                                  java.lang.Object value)
Set the configuration attribute with the specified name. Calling this with a null value is equivalent to calling removeAttribute(name).

Parameters:
name - Name of the attribute to set
value - Value of the attribute to set, or null to remove any setting for this attribute

getFactory

public static LogFactory getFactory()
                             throws LogConfigurationException

Construct (if necessary) and return a LogFactory instance, using the following ordered lookup procedure to determine the name of the implementation class to be loaded.

NOTE - If the properties file method of identifying the LogFactory implementation class is utilized, all of the properties defined in this file will be set as configuration attributes on the corresponding LogFactory instance.

Throws:
LogConfigurationException - if the implementation class is not available or cannot be instantiated.

getLog

public static Log getLog(java.lang.Class clazz)
                  throws LogConfigurationException
Convenience method to return a named logger, without the application having to care about factories.

Parameters:
clazz - Class for which a log name will be derived
Throws:
LogConfigurationException - if a suitable Log instance cannot be returned

getLog

public static Log getLog(java.lang.String name)
                  throws LogConfigurationException
Convenience method to return a named logger, without the application having to care about factories.

Parameters:
name - Logical name of the Log instance to be returned (the meaning of this name is only known to the underlying logging implementation that is being wrapped)
Throws:
LogConfigurationException - if a suitable Log instance cannot be returned

release

public static void release(java.lang.ClassLoader classLoader)
Release any internal references to previously created LogFactory instances that have been associated with the specified class loader (if any), after calling the instance method release() on each of them.

Parameters:
classLoader - ClassLoader for which to release the LogFactory

releaseAll

public static void releaseAll()
Release any internal references to previously created LogFactory instances, after calling the instance method release() on each of them. This is useful environments like servlet containers, which implement application reloading by throwing away a ClassLoader. Dangling references to objects in that class loader would prevent garbage collection.


getContextClassLoader

protected static java.lang.ClassLoader getContextClassLoader()
                                                      throws LogConfigurationException
Return the thread context class loader if available. Otherwise return null. The thread context class loader is available for JDK 1.2 or later, if certain security conditions are met.

Throws:
LogConfigurationException - if a suitable class loader cannot be identified.

newFactory

protected static LogFactory newFactory(java.lang.String factoryClass,
                                       java.lang.ClassLoader classLoader)
                                throws LogConfigurationException
Return a new instance of the specified LogFactory implementation class, loaded by the specified class loader. If that fails, try the class loader used to load this (abstract) LogFactory.

Parameters:
factoryClass - Fully qualified name of the LogFactory implementation class
classLoader - ClassLoader from which to load this class
Throws:
LogConfigurationException - if a suitable instance cannot be created
