* Basic interface for a logging system that can output to one or more targets.
* Note that in addition to classes that will output these logs in some format,
* one can also implement this interface over a filter and insert that in the chain,
* such that no targets further down see certain data, or see manipulated forms of the data.
* You could, for instance, write a "ToHtmlLoggerNode" that just converted all the log data
* it received to HTML and sent it along to the next node in the chain, without printing it
* anywhere.
public interface LogNode {
* Instructs first LogNode in the list to print the log data provided.
* @param priority Log level of the data being logged. Verbose, Error, etc.
* @param tag Tag for for the log data. Can be used to organize log statements.
* @param msg The actual message to be logged. The actual message to be logged.
* @param tr If an exception was thrown, this can be sent along for the logging facilities
* to extract and print useful information.
public void println(int priority, String tag, String msg, Throwable tr);
