Static Wrapper of SLF4J

Logger is a convenient static wrapper of slf4j (don't forget to include one of SLF4J Bindings into the project):

import com.jcabi.log.Logger;
class Foo {
  void bar(int value) {
    Logger.debug(this, "method #bar(%d) was called", value);
  }
}

There are a few other convenient classes in this package:

  • VerboseRunnable: wrapper around java.lang.Runnable that swallows all runtime exceptions and logs them to SLF4J.
  • VerboseProcess: wrapper around java.lang.Process that monitors process executions, collects its output into a String and logs everything through SLF4J.
  • VerboseThreads: an implementation of java.util.concurrent.ThreadFactory that instantiates threads that log all runtime exceptions through SLF4J.

The only dependency you need is (you can also download jcabi-log-0.15.1.jar and add it to the classpath):

<dependency>
  <groupId>com.jcabi</groupId>
  <artifactId>jcabi-log</artifactId>
