What are Trace switches? Describe how to create and use Trace switches.

Trace switches allow us to filter, enable/disable the outputs through Trace. We can configure them through the config file. 3 types of trace switches: BooleanSwitch: Enable/Disable trace statements.

TraceSwitch and SourceSwitch: used for trapping particular Trace levels.

BooleanSwitch dataSwitch =
       new BooleanSwitch("Comment", "module1");
TraceSwitch generalSwitch =
       new TraceSwitch("comment", "module1");
