Parameters

Parameter

Description

message

The message to include in the log entry.

th

A throwable object, normally an exception. ColdFusion logs the exception information in the exception.log file in the ColdFusion logs directory. Not normally used with this method.

Usage

Use this method to send an informational message to the ColdFusion logging subsystem. ColdFusion writes messages with a severity of "information" to the log file specified in the getLogger method that returned the Logger instance (or the default log file).ColdFusion normally logs all information severity messages. So do not use this severity for debugging messages or for events that happen frequently.

Example

The ColdFusion example DirectoryWatcherGateway class includes the following line at the top of its loadconfig method that loads the gateway's configuration file. It writes a message including the gateway ID and configuration file.

logger.info("DirectoryWatcher (" + gatewayID + ") Initializing
DirectoryWatcher gateway with configuration file " + config);
