Subject Re: Turning off my logging programmatically
Date Thu, 14 Mar 2002 07:59:57 GMT

Have you tried the following?

(in log4j 1.1.x or log4j 1.2)

if(!condition) {
   Category cat = Category.getInstance("net.winward");
   cat.setPriority(Priority.FATAL);
}

(in log4j 1.2 only)

if(!condition) {
   Logger logger = Logger.getLogger("net.winward");
   logger.setLogger(Level.OFF);
}

Hope this helps, Ceki
