Hi all,
this is a simple logger api example. But it is giving complilation error at logger.log("Level.ALL","Exception..."). Why it is giving like that. Can u pls tell me?
import java.util.logging.*;
public class LoggerTest
public static void main(String args[]){

Logger logger = Logger.getLogger("LoggerTest");
Handler handler = new FileHandler("logMessages.log");
handler.setFormatter(new SimpleFormatter() ) ;
//int K=1/0;
catch(Exception e)
logger.log("Level.ALL","Exception...", e);

Hi Murli
Please re-look the logger api. The log() method doesn't accept String. It accepts Level.ALL just as it is. I guess that is why you are facing compiler error.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
