Source Code for Apache Log4j API

Apache Log4j API provides the interface that applications should code to and provides the adapter components required for implementers to create a logging implementation. Apache Log4j API is a required module to use Apache Log4j.

Bytecode (Java 8) for Apache Log4j API is provided in a separate JAR file like log4j-api-2.14.1.jar.

Source Code files for Apache Log4j API are provided in both binary packge like apache-log4j-2.14.1-bin.zip and source package like apache-log4j-2.14.1-src.zip. You can download them at Apache Log4j Website.

/**
 * An interface for various Message implementations that can be logged. Messages can act as wrappers
 * around Objects so that user can have control over converting Objects to Strings when necessary without
 * requiring complicated formatters and as a way to manipulate the message based on information available
 * at runtime such as the locale of the system.
 * <p>
 * Custom Message implementations should consider implementing the {@link StringBuilderFormattable}
 * interface for more efficient processing. Garbage-free Layouts will call
 * {@link StringBuilderFormattable#formatTo(StringBuilder) formatTo(StringBuilder)} instead of
 * {@link Message#getFormattedMessage()} if the Message implements StringBuilderFormattable.
 * </p>
 * <p>
 * Note: Message objects should not be considered to be thread safe nor should they be assumed to be
 * safely reusable even on the same thread. The logging system may provide information to the Message
 * objects and the Messages might be queued for asynchronous delivery. Thus, any modifications to a
 * Message object by an application should by avoided after the Message has been passed as a parameter on
 * a Logger method.
 * </p>

     * appropriate way to format the data encapsulated in the Message. Messages that provide
     * more than one way of formatting the Message will implement MultiformatMessage.
     * <p>
     * When configured to log asynchronously, this method is called before the Message is queued, unless this
     * message implements {@link ReusableMessage} or is annotated with {@link AsynchronouslyFormattable}.
     * This gives the Message implementation class a chance to create a formatted message String with the current value
     * of any mutable objects.
     * The intention is that the Message implementation caches this formatted message and returns it on subsequent
