Java client library (SDK) for the Quicklog.io API

Quick Start

Include the dependency.

<dependency>
    <groupId>io.quicklog</groupId>
    <artifactId>quicklog-client</artifactId>
    <version>0.1.0</version>
</dependency>

Create a simple test project. Use the sample in examples/simple.

Use your own Project Id and API Key (in place of 12345 and my-api-key):

public class Demo {
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		QuicklogClient quicklog = QuicklogClient.configure(Config.builder()
			.projectId(12345)
			.apiKey("my-api-key")
			.source("my-program")
			.build());

		TraceCtx traceCtx = new TraceCtx("user:me", null, null);

		Map<String, Object> extra = new HashMap<>();
		extra.put("key", "value");

		List<String> tags = Arrays.asList("name1:value1", "value", "name1:value:with:colons", ":value:with:colons");

		try {
			quicklog.entry(Instant.now(), "a-type", "object:1", "target:2", extra, traceCtx, tags);
			System.out.println("OK: Logged.");
            System.exit(0);
		} catch (Exception e) {
			System.out.println("Error: " + e.toString());
            System.exit(1);
		}
	}
}

Build it:

  • cd examples/simple
  • mvn package

Run it:

  • java -jar target/java -jar target/quicklog-client-demo-0.1.0.jar

It should send a log entry to api.quicklog.io and print OK: Logged.

Verify it:

Verify that the entry was logged:

  • curl -si 'https://api.quicklog.io/entries?project_id=12345&api_key=my-api-key'

Verify that the tag was associated:

  • curl -si 'https://api.quicklog.io/entries?tag=name1:value1&project_id=12345&api_key=my-api-key', or
  • curl -si 'https://api.quicklog.io/entries?tag=value1&project_id=12345&api_key=my-api-key'

Methods

QuicklogClient.configure(Config config)

The configure method is used to set global settings. Both projectId and apiKey are required. Using a unique source value for each service or subsystem will make easier to follow trace logs. An instance of a QuicklogClient is returned.

quicklogClient.entry(Instant.now(), "a-type", "object:1", "target:2", extra, traceCtx, tags)

The entry method is what sends a log entry to the quicklog server. Parameters:

  • published the timestamp of the event being sent
  • type is an event name string, such as a user action or system event
  • object is a string identifying the primary thing the log is about
  • target is a string identifying a secondary thing the log is about
  • extra is a map of application-defined string key/values
  • traceCtx is a value as new TraceCtx("actor:"+userId, traceId, parentSpanId);
  • tags is a list of tag strings, each of the form 'key:value' or 'value' or ':value:with3️⃣colons'

quicklogClient.tag(String traceId, String tag)

The tag method is for associating an application defined value (or key:value) with a traceId. Normally tags are added at the same time a log entry is created. A given tag only needs to be added once per unique traceId by each source.

The tag parameter is a string of the form 'a value' or 'key:value'. If you want to use a value with no key but the value itself contains a colon (:) then you can use the form ':value:containing:colons'

Note that associating a tag with a traceId doesn't create a visible log. It's purpose is to allow searching of logged traces by tags. For instance a tag order:5678 could mean that the logs for a trace with that tag pertain to a customer's order number 5678.
