Mariano Ruiz commented on SLF4J-371:

@MiNG, the *Logger* API of both frameworks are very similar, take a look of how is defined in _Log4j2_: [https://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/log4j-api/apidocs/org/apache/logging/log4j/Logger.html#debug-java.lang.String-org.apache.logging.log4j.util.Supplier...-]

>                 URL: https://jira.qos.ch/browse/SLF4J-371
>             Project: SLF4J
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Core API
>    Affects Versions: 1.7.22
>            Reporter: MiNG

> In some cases, we don't want to calculate the expression for logging eagerly cause the performance reason. Then, we would write the code like the following:
> {code:java}
> if (LOGGER.isWarnEnabled())
> {
>  LOGGER.warn("some message: {}", Json.serialize(obj));
> }{code}
> Before JDK8, there is no way to encapsulate the above code, because the expression is always calculated before passed as an argument. So, many "if"s appear in the code and smell badly.
> Now, the lambda expression is supported by JDK8, the above could be simplified like following:
> {code:java}
> LOGGER.warn(formatter -> formatter.format("some message: {}", Json.serialize(obj)));{code}
> With the default method definition in the org.slf4j.Logger:
> {code:java}
> public interface Logger
> {
>  default void warn(Function<MessageFormatter, String> messageSupplier)
>  {
>   if (this.isWarnEnabled())
>   {
>    /* Calculate the expression only if the WARN level logging is enabled. */
>    this.warn(messageSupplier.apply(this.getFormatter()));
>   }
>  }
> }{code}
