getCurrentMethodName (wasn't quite working might need it to be static)
private static int getStackTraceIndexForObject(final Object object)
// Finds out the index of "this code" in the returned stack trace - funny but it differs in JDK 1.5 and 1.6
int i = 0;
for (final StackTraceElement ste : Thread.currentThread().getStackTrace()) {
if (ste.getClassName().equals(object.getClass().getName())) {
return i;
public static String getCurrentMethodName(final Object object) {
return Thread.currentThread().getStackTrace()[getStackTraceIndexForObject(object)].getMethodName();
