I'm coding an Applet for the Java(TM) Plug-in - for browser. I noticed that it has this great tracing feature -- you see it as soon as the java console is opened
0-5: set trace level to <n>
I am trying to figure out how to integrate this with my code - so that if I want finer grain logging to the output I can get it just by pressing 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5.
If anybody knows how to tie this in with my code I would appreciate it. I have already looked at the Documentation and it doesn't give any code example.
It just says this.
Enhanced Java Plug-in Tracing
In the previous version of Java Plug-in, tracing could be turned on by enabling the property javaplugin.trace. However, it turned on all tracing facilities inside Java Plug-in, and messages often flooded the Java Console. In this version, tracing control is more fine-grained. A new property, javaplugin.trace.option, has been introduced. You can set trace-level options (0-5) in the Java Console, shown above, with the following meanings:
0 — off
1 — basic
2 — network and basic
3 — security, network and basic
4 — extension, security, network and basic
5 — LiveConnect, extension, security, network and basic
This enables tracing on the fly.
