Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1447) Garbage-free data structure for LogEvent's context map data
Date Sat, 09 Jul 2016 07:49:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1447?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15368987#comment-15368987

Ralph Goers commented on LOG4J2-1447:

The only issue I have is with the put method. If the data structure is immutable the interface
exposed to Filters, Appenders, etc shouldn't allow modification. Of course, the actual implementation
class can have a put method or whatever is needed to populate the data structure.

> With each logging call, context map data is copied from the {{ThreadContext}} map into
the {{LogEvent}}.
> The LogEvent interface exposes this data via the {{getContextMap() : Map<String, String>}}
method, and this is implementated by storing the data in a Map<String, String>.  The
JDK Map is not an easy data structure to make garbage-free. It would also be nice to have
the ability in LogEvent to carry data of any type.
> One idea is to introduce a small interface that is general enough to be map-like but
can be implemented in a garbage-free manner. 
> LogEvent implementations would have an instance of this interface instead of the current
{{java.util.Map<String, String> contextMap}} attribute.
> The interface could look something like this:
> {code}
> interface ContextData<String, V> {
>     /** Called to implement {@link LogEvent#getContextMap()}. */
>     Map<String, String> asMap();
>     /** Put key-value pair into the table.
>         Remove key if value is null. */
>     void put(String key, V value);
>     /** Returns the value for the specified key. */
>     V getValue(String key);
>     /** Number of key-value pairs. */
>     int size();
>     /** Removes all key-value pairs. */
>     void clear();
> // Instead of Iterators, client code provides the consumer.
>     /** 
>      * Performs the given action for each key-value pair in this data structure
>      * until all entries have been processed or the action throws an exception.
>      */
>     void forEach(BiConsumer<String, ? super V> action);
> }
> /**
>  * An operation that accepts two input arguments and returns no result.
>  */
> interface BiConsumer<T,U> {
>     /** Performs the operation given the specified arguments. */
>     void accept(T t, U u);
> }
> {code}
> The LogEvent interface would have an additional method {{getContextData() : ContextData<K,
V>}} that gives downstream components direct access to the new data structure. 
> Existing downstream components would still be able to call {{logEvent.getContextMap()}}
to get a {{Map<String, String>}} view of the context map data and this would work as
