I'm a Java as well as ODL noob, sok please bear with me. I'm trying to get my hands dirty with Controller's code by trying to understand the SimpleForwarding module. As a first step, I tried to put a few log.debug()s in the code. Then, I successfully installed the SimpleForwarding bundle and tried to see my logs, but they don't get displayed. Then, I went and updated a which was getting printed on the console of another module (StatisticsProvider) and updated the message. Again, successful mvn install, restarted the ODL server, but still can't see the updated message. Where might I be going wrong

I just found the answer to my own question when reading a different question :

Basically we need to set the appropriate LogLevels either for the base bundle or the specific internal class. In my case : setLogLevel org.opendaylight.controller.samples.simpleforwarding DEBUG or specifically, setLogLevel org.opendaylight.controller.samples.simpleforwarding.internal.SimpleForwarding DEBUG

Yet another way is to add the following line in the configuration/logback.xml file :

<logger name="org.opendaylight.controller.samples.simpleforwarding" level="DEBUG"/>

If that worked for you then can you mark your answer as accepted? :)

I wish I could. But I don't have enough points (>20). That's why I couldn't close the question either.
