    • Method Detail

      • setHostname

        public void setHostname​(String value)
        Sets the host to send the logging data to.
        value - the host
      • getHostname

        public String getHostname()
        Returns the host to send the logging data to.
        the host
      • setPort

        public void setPort​(int value)
        Sets the port to send the logging data to.
        value - the port
      • getPort

        public int getPort()
        Returns the port to send the logging data to.
        the port
      • setMaxFailures

        public void setMaxFailures​(int value)
        Sets the maximum number of failures to accept.
        value - the maximum, -1 for infinite tries
      • getMaxFailures

        public int getMaxFailures()
        Returns the maximum number of failures to accept.
        the maximum, -1 for infinite tries
      • close

        public void close()
                   throws SecurityException
        Close the Handler and free all associated resources.

        The close method will perform a flush and then close the Handler. After close has been called this Handler should no longer be used. Method calls may either be silently ignored or may throw runtime exceptions.

        close in class AbstractLogHandler
        SecurityException - if a security manager exists and if the caller does not have LoggingPermission("control").
      • open

        protected void open()
        Tries to open the socket.
      • doPublish

        protected void doPublish​(LogRecord record)
        Publish a LogRecord.

        The logging request was made initially to a Logger object, which initialized the LogRecord and forwarded it here.

        The Handler is responsible for formatting the message, when and if necessary. The formatting should include localization.

        Specified by:
        doPublish in class AbstractLogHandler
        record - description of the log event. A null record is silently ignored and is not published
      • compareTo

        public int compareTo​(Handler o)
        Compares the handler with itself.
        Specified by:
        compareTo in interface Comparable<Handler>
        compareTo in class AbstractLogHandler
        o - the other handler
        less than 0, equal to 0, or greater than 0 if the handler is less, equal to, or greater than this one
      • main

        public static void main​(String[] args)
        Just for testing.
        args - optionally supply host and port
