Setting loggers in Selenium

Imports to make

import java.io.File;
import java.io.IOException;
import org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender;
import org.apache.log4j.Level;
import org.apache.log4j.LogManager;
import org.apache.log4j.Logger;
import org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout;
import org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender;

Give class a name that can be used throughout

public class Loggers {
public static Logger log = LogManager.getLogger(Loggers.class.getName());

Method to set logger

public static void setLogger() {
/* get the Verbose value from System environment variable to get the logLevel.
* if Verbose=1 then logLevel is set to DEBUG and else by default logLevel set to * INFO Level for logs according to the priority (ALL > TRACE > DEBUG > INFO > WARN> ERROR > FATAL > OFF )
*/
// log.getRootLogger().setLevel(Level.OFF);
try {
final String value = System.getenv("evgm.log.Verbose");
if (value.equals("1"))
log.setLevel(Level.DEBUG);
else
log.setLevel(Level.INFO);
}
catch (Exception e)
{
log.setLevel(Level.INFO);
}

/*PatternLayout represents the pattern of logs that is generated.
* %d:date, %t:Thread Name, %p:levels(info,warn,error e.t.c), m:mesages,
 n:new line */
PatternLayout layout = new PatternLayout("[%d{dd MMM yyyy HH:mm:ss}] [%t] [%p] %m%n");
log.addAppender(new ConsoleAppender(layout));
try {
File directory = null;
// To get current path of directory
final String cwd = System.getProperty("user.dir");
directory = new File(cwd + File.separator + "Logs");
if (!directory.exists())
{
directory.mkdirs();
}
else
{
for (File file : directory.listFiles())
{
if (file.isFile())
file.delete();
}
}

// Define file appender with layout and output log file name
RollingFileAppender fileAppender = new RollingFileAppender(layout, directory + File.separator + "Logs.log");
// Add the appender to logger to output logs in File
log.addAppender(fileAppender);
}
catch (IOException e)
{
log.error("Failed to add appender !!");
}
}

Method for info type of logger

/*info():logs the information which is helpful in track the application
* flow @param msg:message is passed as parameter which is to be logged */
public static void info(String msg)
{
log.info(String.format("[%s]", Thread.currentThread().getId()) + " " + Thread.currentThread().getStackTrace()[2] + " - " + msg);
}

Method for warn type of logger

/*warn():Designates potentially harmful situations.
* @param msg:message is passed as parameter which is to be logged */
public static void warn(String msg)
{
log.warn(String.format("[%s]", Thread.currentThread().getId()) + " " + Thread.currentThread().getStackTrace()[2] + " - " + msg);
}

Method for error type of logger

/*error():Designates error events that might still allow the application to *continue running. Any exceptions under catch is handled using error
* @param msg:message is passed which is to be logged */

public static void error(String msg)
{
log.error(String.format("[%s]", Thread.currentThread().getId()) + " " + Thread.currentThread().getStackTrace()[2] + " - " + msg);
}

Method for fatal type of logger

/* fatal():Designates very severe error events that will presumably lead the *application to abort.
* @param msg:message is passed which is to be logged */
public static void fatal(String msg)
{
log.fatal(String.format("[%s]", Thread.currentThread().getId()) + " " + Thread.currentThread().getStackTrace()[2] + " - " + msg);
}

Method for trace type of logger

/* trace():Designates finer-grained informational events than the DEBUG.
* @param msg:message  is passed which is to be logged
*/
public static void trace(String msg) {
log.trace(String.format("[%s]", Thread.currentThread().getId()) + " " + Thread.currentThread().getStackTrace()[2] + " - " + msg);
}

Method for debug type of logger

/*debug():Designates fine-grained informational events that are most useful
*to debug an application. debug method takes time to evaluate, in that case you *can skip this evaluation if debug is not enabled.
* @param msg:message is passed which is to be logged
*/
public static void debug(String msg) {
if (log.isDebugEnabled()) {
log.debug(String.format("[%s]", Thread.currentThread().getId()) + " "
+ Thread.currentThread().getStackTrace()[2] + " - " + msg);
}
}
