Hi all,

what level of logging are we required to apply for the assignment?
eg. entry and exit of every method, or only critical methods?

Also should we allow the user to specify the location of the log file from the GUI and persist it to suncertify.properties?
I would prefer to have it specified in the suncertify.properties rather than through the GUI or just use the users home directory by specifying the pattern in the log handler.. are either of these two allowed?

Thanks in advance,
James

Hi James,

My assignment doesn't require logging, Yet a good logging technique will make our lives (and most importantly the grader's life) easier.
My point is that this is a decision that you have to take: if you don't provide logging you won't lose points, at the same time if you log heavily (even where it is not needed) log messages will lose their benefit since your log files will be flooded.

regards
