Hi all,

Can you tell me why we always need to use a class (or a name of a class) in the getLogger method?


Why don't we simply use a same name (for example "ABCDEFGH") for every .java file ?


Thank you very much.

You could, but when you are reading a log file, which do you think would be more useful to see as part of the messages - the name of the class that generated the log message or a string that has no relation to the java class ?
 
Can you shoot lasers out of your eyes? Don't look at this tiny ad:
