   The MDC class is similar to the {@link NDC} class except that it is
   based on a map instead of a stack. It provides mapped
   diagnostic contexts. A Mapped Diagnostic Context, or
   MDC in short, is an instrument for distinguishing interleaved log
   output from different sources. Log output is typically interleaved
   when a server handles multiple clients near-simultaneously.


The MDC is managed on a per thread basis. A child thread automatically inherits a copy of the mapped diagnostic context of its parent.

The MDC class requires JDK 1.2 or above. Under JDK 1.1 the MDC will always return empty values but otherwise will not affect or harm your application. @since 1.2 @author Ceki Gülcü */ public class MDC { final static MDC mdc = new MDC(); static final int HT_SIZE = 7; boolean java1; Object tlm; private MDC() { java1 = Loader.isJava1(); if(!java1) { tlm = new ThreadLocalMap(); } } /** Put a context value (the o parameter) as identified with the key parameter into the current thread's context map.

If the current thread does not have a context map it is created as a side effect. */ static public void put(String key, Object o) { mdc.put0(key, o); } /** Get the context identified by the key parameter.

This method has no side effects. */ static public Object get(String key) { return mdc.get0(key); } /** Remove the the context identified by the key parameter. */ static public void remove(String key) { mdc.remove0(key); } /** * Get the current thread's MDC as a hashtable. This method is * intended to be used internally. * */ public static Hashtable getContext() { return mdc.getContext0(); } private void put0(String key, Object o) { if(java1) { return; } else { Hashtable ht = (Hashtable) ((ThreadLocalMap)tlm).get(); if(ht == null) { ht = new Hashtable(HT_SIZE); ((ThreadLocalMap)tlm).set(ht); } ht.put(key, o); } } private Object get0(String key) { if(java1) { return null; } else { Hashtable ht = (Hashtable) ((ThreadLocalMap)tlm).get(); if(ht != null && key != null) { return ht.get(key); } else { return null; } } } private void remove0(String key) { if(!java1) { Hashtable ht = (Hashtable) ((ThreadLocalMap)tlm).get(); if(ht != null) { ht.remove(key); } } } private Hashtable getContext0() { if(java1) { return null; } else { return (Hashtable) ((ThreadLocalMap)tlm).get(); } } }
