Class Log4JSegmentListener

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class Log4JSegmentListener
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements SegmentListener
    Implementation of SegmentListener that's used for Trace ID injection into logs that are recorded using the Log4J frontend API. To inject the X-Ray trace ID into your logging events, insert %X{AWS-XRAY-TRACE-ID} wherever you feel comfortable in the layout pattern of your logging events. This is can be done wherever you configure Log4J for your project. Refer to the Log4J configuration documentation for more details.

      • onSetEntity

        public void onSetEntity​(Entity oldEntity,
                                Entity newEntity)
        Maps the AWS-XRAY-TRACE-ID key to the formatted ID of the entity that's just been created in the Log4J ThreadContext. Does not perform injection if entity is not available or not sampled, since then the given entity would not be displayed in X-Ray console.
        Specified by:
        onSetEntity in interface SegmentListener
        oldEntity - the previous entity or null
        newEntity - the new entity, either a subsegment or segment
      • onClearEntity

        public void onClearEntity​(Entity entity)
        Removes the AWS-XRAY-TRACE-ID key from the ThreadContext upon the completion of each segment.
        Specified by:
        onClearEntity in interface SegmentListener
        entity - The segment that has just ended
