Member Function Documentation

◆ addFilter()

virtual void log4cxx::Appender::addFilter ( const spi::FilterPtr newFilter)
pure virtual

Add a filter to the end of the filter list.

Implemented in log4cxx::AppenderSkeleton.

◆ asdf()

void log4cxx::Appender::asdf ( )

◆ clearFilters()

virtual void log4cxx::Appender::clearFilters ( )
pure virtual

Clear the list of filters by removing all the filters in it.

Implemented in log4cxx::AppenderSkeleton.

◆ close()

virtual void log4cxx::Appender::close ( )
pure virtual

◆ doAppend()

virtual void log4cxx::Appender::doAppend ( const spi::LoggingEventPtr event,
log4cxx::helpers::Pool pool 
)
pure virtual

Log in Appender specific way.

When appropriate, Loggers will call the doAppend method of appender implementations in order to log.

Implemented in log4cxx::AppenderSkeleton, and log4cxx::AsyncAppender.

◆ getFilter()

virtual spi::FilterPtr log4cxx::Appender::getFilter ( ) const
pure virtual

Returns the head Filter.

The Filters are organized in a linked list and so all Filters on this Appender are available through the result.

Returns
the head Filter or null, if no Filters are present

Implemented in log4cxx::AppenderSkeleton.

◆ getLayout()

virtual LayoutPtr log4cxx::Appender::getLayout ( ) const
pure virtual

Returns this appenders layout.

Implemented in log4cxx::AppenderSkeleton.

◆ getName()

virtual LogString log4cxx::Appender::getName ( ) const
pure virtual

Get the name of this appender.

The name uniquely identifies the appender.

Implemented in log4cxx::AppenderSkeleton.

◆ requiresLayout()

virtual bool log4cxx::Appender::requiresLayout ( ) const
pure virtual

Configurators call this method to determine if the appender requires a layout.

If this method returns true, meaning that layout is required, then the configurator will configure an layout using the configuration information at its disposal. If this method returns false, meaning that a layout is not required, then layout configuration will be skipped even if there is available layout configuration information at the disposal of the configurator..

In the rather exceptional case, where the appender implementation admits a layout but can also work without it, then the appender should return true.

Implemented in log4cxx::db::ODBCAppender, log4cxx::WriterAppender, log4cxx::net::SocketHubAppender, log4cxx::net::SMTPAppender, log4cxx::AsyncAppender, log4cxx::net::SyslogAppender, log4cxx::net::TelnetAppender, log4cxx::net::SocketAppenderSkeleton, log4cxx::nt::NTEventLogAppender, and log4cxx::nt::OutputDebugStringAppender.

◆ setLayout()

virtual void log4cxx::Appender::setLayout ( const LayoutPtr layout)
pure virtual

Set the Layout for this appender.

Implemented in log4cxx::AppenderSkeleton.

◆ setName()

virtual void log4cxx::Appender::setName ( const LogString name)
pure virtual

Set the name of this appender.

The name is used by other components to identify this appender.

Implemented in log4cxx::AppenderSkeleton.
