Logging in SmallRye Fault Tolerance is based on JBoss Logging Tools (see also SmallRye instructions).
It’s an annotation processor that takes annotated interfaces and generates logger implementations with out of the box support for message codes and internationalization.
We use a project code of
Message codes are divided into ranges that are defined in the
message-ranges.txt file in the root directory.
In addition to logging, JBoss Logging Tools can also be used for creating exceptions, again, with out of the box support for message codes and internationalization.
Contrary to both documentation sites mentioned above, it is possible to mix logging and exceptions in a single interface, as demonstrated by
However, SmallRye Fault Tolerance doesn’t use this feature yet, with the exception of
This should be rectified in the future.
TRACE logging doesn’t need message codes or internationalization, so we usually don’t declare logger methods for them, unless the log message requires parameters.
We still declare the logger interface, let it extend
BasicLogger and use the singleton instance to log plain
