Detailed Description

The internal representation of logging events.

When an affirmative decision is made to log then a LoggingEvent instance is created. This instance is passed around to the different log4cxx components.

This class is of concern to those wishing to extend log4cxx.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

For serialization only.

LoggingEvent ( const LogString logger,
const LevelPtr level,
const LogString message,
const log4cxx::spi::LocationInfo location 
)

Instantiate a LoggingEvent from the supplied parameters.

Except timeStamp all the other fields of LoggingEvent are filled when actually needed.

Parameters
loggerThe logger of this event.
levelThe level of this event.
messageThe message of this event.
locationlocation of logging request.

Member Function Documentation

const LevelPtr& getLevel ( ) const
inline

Return the level of this event.

const log4cxx::spi::LocationInfo& getLocationInformation ( ) const
inline
const LogString& getLoggerName ( ) const
inline

Return the name of the logger.

bool getMDC ( const LogString key,
LogString dest 
) const

Appends the the context corresponding to the key parameter.

If there is a local MDC copy, possibly because we are in a logging server or running inside AsyncAppender, then we search for the key in MDC copy, if a value is found it is returned. Otherwise, if the search in MDC copy returns an empty result, then the current thread's MDC is used.

Note that both the local MDC copy and the current thread's MDC are searched.

Parameters
keykey.
deststring to which value, if any, is appended.
Returns
true if key had a corresponding value.
void getMDCCopy ( ) const

Obtain a copy of this thread's MDC prior to serialization or asynchronous logging.

KeySet getMDCKeySet ( ) const

Returns the set of of the key values in the MDC for the event.

The returned set is unmodifiable by the caller.

Returns
Set an unmodifiable set of the MDC keys.
const LogString& getMessage ( ) const
inline

Return the message for this logging event.

bool getNDC ( LogString dest) const

This method appends the NDC for this event to passed string.

It will return the correct content even if the event was generated in a different thread or even on a different machine. The NDC::get method should never be called directly.

Parameters
destdestination for NDC, unchanged if NDC is not set.
Returns
true if NDC is set.
bool getProperty ( const LogString key,
LogString dest 
) const

Return a previously set property.

Parameters
keykey.
deststring to which value, if any, is appended.
Returns
true if key had a corresponding value.
KeySet getPropertyKeySet ( ) const

Returns the set of of the key values in the properties for the event.

The returned set is unmodifiable by the caller.

Returns
Set an unmodifiable set of the property keys.
const LogString& getRenderedMessage ( ) const
inline

Return the message for this logging event.

static log4cxx_time_t getStartTime ( )
static

Returns the time when the application started, in seconds elapsed since 01.01.1970.

const LogString& getThreadName ( ) const
inline

Return the threadName of this event.

log4cxx_time_t getTimeStamp ( ) const
inline

Return the timeStamp of this event.

LOG4CXX_LIST_DEF ( KeySet  ,
LogString   
)
void setProperty ( const LogString key,
const LogString value 
)

Set a string property using a key and a string value.

since 1.3

void write ( helpers::ObjectOutputStream os,
helpers::Pool p 
) const

Writes the content of the LoggingEvent in a format compatible with log4j's serialized form.
