I want to understand if there is anyway I can mask certain string variables of a class like password, etc which will prevent during logging. Like overriding .toString() method in such way it does not print in logs.
We have a class Employee with following fields:-
During logging like
Here in logging, I'm trying to print the whole object, Employee here and my requirement is it should not print out masked field, password at all and whereas logging of rest of the fields are fine.
So, what happens when you print out an instance of this class? Does it print the password?
What is the toString method like?
Why have you got a password as a field in the first place? Why have you stored the password as a String?
