Subject RE: Priority.getAllPossiblePriorities() bug reported yet?
Date Wed, 09 Apr 2003 17:37:09 GMT
Actually, it doesn't help in this case.  The reason it doesn't is that 
there is no equals() method of Level which would allow the expression 
"Level.ERROR.equals(Priority.ERROR)" to evaluate as true.  Since I was 
using the returned list of priorities as keys to a Map, and then 
attempting to later perform a lookup in that map using the Level from a 
LoggingEvent, the fact that Level.INFO is not the same object as 
Priority.INFO becomes significant.
Yoav's suggestion for changing getAllPossiblePriorities would work, but it 
would be disruptive of existing code, which I assume is the reason for 
deprecating instead of removing the method immediately.  The smoothest 
transition would be afforded by implementing a good equals() method in

As Yoav said, the method Priority.getAllPossiblePriorities() is likely to
disappear some time in the future. Moreover, if you look closely in the
code of Priority.java class, you will see that all the static "priorities"
are actually of type Level. Does this help?
