log4j2-hedera

Provides Log4j 2.x support for Hedera™ via an Appender that records logged events using the Hedera™ Consensus Service (HCS).

Install

Gradle
implementation 'com.hedera.hashgraph:log4j2:0.1.0'
Maven
<dependency>
    <groupId>com.hedera.hashgraph</groupId>
    <artifactId>log4j2</artifactId>
    <version>0.1.0</version>
</dependency>

Usage

  • Create the directory src/main/resources in your project

  • Add the file log4j2.xml to the resources directory you just made in your project. An example configuration file is in this repo.

  • Add HederaAppender under Appenders in the log4j2.xml like this:

...
<Appenders>
    ...
    <HederaAppender name="HederaAppender" operator_id="0.0.555555" topic_id="0.0.555556" 
        operator_key="Ed25519PrivateKeyHere" network_name="testnet_or_mainnet" />
</Appenders>
<Loggers>
    <Root level="error">
        <AppenderRef ref="HederaAppender"/>
    </Root>
</Loggers>
...
  • Import the log4j packages LogManager and Logger like this:
import org.apache.logging.log4j.LogManager;
import org.apache.logging.log4j.Logger;
  • Instantiate the logger like this:
final static Logger logger = LogManager.getLogger(App.class);
  • Log things like this:
logger.debug("This is a debug log: " + message);
logger.info("This is an info log : " + message);
logger.warn("This is a warning log : " + message);
logger.error("This is an error log : " + message);
logger.fatal("This is a fatal log : " + message);

Configuration

All configuration for the Appender is done in log4j2.xml.

To log things under the level of error, make sure to change the line <Root level="error"> to <Root level="debug">,
<Root level="info">, or <Root level="warn">.

Make sure you remember to change the values for each of the <HederaAppender> attributes in your project! The ones provided in the example won't work as is!
