Subject RE: Performance and Logger.getLogger()
Date Wed, 02 Apr 2003 14:23:18 GMT

You're in a difficult position ;(

My gut instinct says a map lookup will be faster than
Logger.getLogger(), so your idea about populating a map might be good.
Of course you will still have one Logger.getLogger() call for each
logger, but that's far better than calling it every time.  

You also have to enforce a convention regarding logger naming, e.g. use
the class name for the logger name.  That may not be a big deal, as it's
a common convention anyways, but note that log4j by itself does not
require this convention.
