    Default design pattern question

    Hi all.

    I have a working java application,
    this application got tons of methods / functions that do some stuff.

    i would like to create a new class that will log all these method calls, for example:

    i want a method like this: doSomething (object target1) {..}

    to be logged (every time it is called) in my new log-class like this : date/class-name:doSomething/parameters:target1

    a simple solution (inefficient) will be to put a call in any of my methods\functions like this:

    doSomething (object target1) {

    i really dont want to add manually in every place this kind of call.. is there any more efficient way to do it??

    p.s - the log is only an example, my class is not really a log. but its easier to understand this way.

    Sounds like a job for JPDA.
    Get in the habit of using standard Java naming conventions!

    Will this functionality, whatever it is, be switched on in the live production environment?

    You may have to consider search and replace using regular expressions to insert the boilerplate code. I had a similar requirement and wrote a utility to handle such replacements.
