Hi guys,

neither suggestion would help in our situation.

We have a large code-base which contains

if(logger.isXxxEnabled()) logger.xxx(...);

Changing all loggings statements isn't an option.

Beside that, we also have code like
// perform lots of preparation, construct large message using
StringBuilder etc.

Code like that may actually contain a bug (and did so in the past) so I
*want* to run all tests, once with Level.ALL and once with Level.OFF.

I thought maybe someone has already found a solution but I should
probably ask that question on a junit mailinglist...

Thanks anyway,
