Class LogRecord

java.lang.Object
java.util.logging.LogRecord
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable

public class LogRecord extends Object implements Serializable
LogRecord objects are used to pass logging requests between the logging framework and individual log Handlers.

When a LogRecord is passed into the logging framework it logically belongs to the framework and should no longer be used or updated by the client application.

Note that if the client application has not specified an explicit source method name and source class name, then the LogRecord class will infer them automatically when they are first accessed (due to a call on getSourceMethodName or getSourceClassName) by analyzing the call stack. Therefore, if a logging Handler wants to pass off a LogRecord to another thread, or to transmit it over RMI, and if it wishes to subsequently obtain method name or class name information it should call one of getSourceClassName or getSourceMethodName to force the values to be filled in.

Serialization notes:

  • The LogRecord class is serializable.
  • Because objects in the parameters array may not be serializable, during serialization all objects in the parameters array are written as the corresponding Strings (using Object.toString).
  • The ResourceBundle is not transmitted as part of the serialized form, but the resource bundle name is, and the recipient object's readObject method will attempt to locate a suitable resource bundle.

Since:
1.4

  • Constructor Details

    • LogRecord

      public LogRecord(Level level, String msg)
      Construct a LogRecord with the given level and message values.

      The sequence property will be initialized with a new unique value. These sequence values are allocated in increasing order within a VM.

      Since JDK 9, the event time is represented by an Instant. The instant property will be initialized to the current instant, using the best available clock on the system.

      The thread ID property will be initialized with a unique ID for the current thread.

      All other properties will be initialized to "null".

      Parameters:
      level - a logging level value
      msg - the raw non-localized logging message (may be null)

    • getResourceBundle

      public ResourceBundle getResourceBundle()
      Get the localization resource bundle

      This is the ResourceBundle that should be used to localize the message string before formatting it. The result may be null if the message is not localizable, or if no suitable ResourceBundle is available.

      Returns:
      the localization resource bundle
    • setResourceBundle

      public void setResourceBundle(ResourceBundle bundle)
      Set the localization resource bundle.

    • getResourceBundleName

      public String getResourceBundleName()
      Get the localization resource bundle name

      This is the name for the ResourceBundle that should be used to localize the message string before formatting it. The result may be null if the message is not localizable.

      Returns:
      the localization resource bundle name
    • setResourceBundleName

      public void setResourceBundleName(String name)
      Set the localization resource bundle name.
      Parameters:
      name - localization bundle name (may be null)
    • getLevel

      public Level getLevel()
      Get the logging message level, for example Level.SEVERE.
      Returns:
      the logging message level
    • setLevel

      public void setLevel(Level level)

      level - the logging message level
    • getSequenceNumber

      public long getSequenceNumber()
      Get the sequence number.

      Sequence numbers are normally assigned in the LogRecord constructor, which assigns unique sequence numbers to each new LogRecord in increasing order.

      Returns:
      the sequence number
    • setSequenceNumber

      public void setSequenceNumber(long seq)
      Set the sequence number.

      Sequence numbers are normally assigned in the LogRecord constructor, so it should not normally be necessary to use this method.

      Parameters:
      seq - the sequence number
    • getSourceClassName

      public String getSourceClassName()
      Get the name of the class that (allegedly) issued the logging request.

      Note that this sourceClassName is not verified and may be spoofed. This information may either have been provided as part of the logging call, or it may have been inferred automatically by the logging framework. In the latter case, the information may only be approximate and may in fact describe an earlier call on the stack frame.

      May be null if no information could be obtained.

      Returns:
      the source class name
    • setSourceClassName

      public void setSourceClassName(String sourceClassName)
      Set the name of the class that (allegedly) issued the logging request.
      Parameters:
      sourceClassName - the source class name (may be null)
    • getSourceMethodName

      public String getSourceMethodName()
      Get the name of the method that (allegedly) issued the logging request.

      Note that this sourceMethodName is not verified and may be spoofed. This information may either have been provided as part of the logging call, or it may have been inferred automatically by the logging framework. In the latter case, the information may only be approximate and may in fact describe an earlier call on the stack frame.

      May be null if no information could be obtained.

      Returns:
      the source method name
    • setSourceMethodName

      public void setSourceMethodName(String sourceMethodName)
      Set the name of the method that (allegedly) issued the logging request.
      Parameters:
      sourceMethodName - the source method name (may be null)
    • getMessage

      public String getMessage()
      Get the "raw" log message, before localization or formatting.

      May be null, which is equivalent to the empty string "".

      This message may be either the final text or a localization key.

      During formatting, if the source logger has a localization ResourceBundle and if that ResourceBundle has an entry for this message string, then the message string is replaced with the localized value.

      Returns:
      the raw message string
    • setMessage

      public void setMessage(String message)
      Set the "raw" log message, before localization or formatting.
      Parameters:
      message - the raw message string (may be null)
    • getParameters

      public Object[] getParameters()
      Get the parameters to the log message.

      Set the parameters to the log message.
      Parameters:
      parameters - the log message parameters. (may be null)
    • getThreadID

      @Deprecated(since="16") public int getThreadID()
      Deprecated.
      Values returned by this method may be synthesized, and may not correspond to the actual thread id, use getLongThreadID() instead.
      Get an identifier for the thread where the message originated.

      This is a thread identifier within the Java VM and may or may not map to any operating system ID.

      Returns:
      thread ID
    • setThreadID

      @Deprecated(since="16") public void setThreadID(int threadID)
      Deprecated.
      This method doesn't allow to pass a long thread id, use setLongThreadID(long) instead.
      Set an identifier for the thread where the message originated.
      Parameters:
      threadID - the thread ID
    • getLongThreadID

      public long getLongThreadID()
      Get a thread identifier for the thread where message originated

      This is a thread identifier within the Java VM and may or may not map to any operating system ID.

      Returns:

    • getMillis

      public long getMillis()
      Get truncated event time in milliseconds since 1970.
      API Note:
      To get the full nanosecond resolution event time, use getInstant().
      Implementation Requirements:
      This is equivalent to calling getInstant().toEpochMilli().
      Returns:
      truncated event time in millis since 1970
      See Also:
      getInstant()
    • setMillis

      @Deprecated public void setMillis(long millis)
      Deprecated.
      LogRecord maintains timestamps with nanosecond resolution, using Instant values. For this reason, setInstant() should be used in preference to setMillis().
      Set event time.
      Implementation Requirements:
      This is equivalent to calling setInstant(Instant.ofEpochMilli(millis)).
      Parameters:
      millis - event time in millis since 1970.
      See Also:
      setInstant(java.time.Instant)
    • getInstant

      public Instant getInstant()
      Gets the instant that the event occurred.
      Returns:
      the instant that the event occurred.
      Since:
      9
    • setInstant

      public void setInstant(Instant instant)
      Sets the instant that the event occurred.

      If the given instant represents a point on the time-line too far in the future or past to fit in a long milliseconds and nanoseconds adjustment, then an ArithmeticException will be thrown.

      Parameters:
      instant - the instant that the event occurred.
      Throws:
      NullPointerException - if instant is null.
      ArithmeticException - if numeric overflow would occur while calling instant.toEpochMilli().
      Since:
      9

      Returns:
      a throwable
    • setThrown

      public void setThrown(Throwable thrown)
      Set a throwable associated with the log event.
      Parameters:
