Subject Re: How to Stop logging
Date Wed, 02 Jan 2008 16:23:47 GMT
So, exactly what problem are you having with "stopping logging"?  This is 
exactly what Log4j is designed to do; log by category in a hierarchical 
manner.

First, define logging for the root logger.  I usually set this to some 
relatively high level, such as WARN, so that extraneous logging performed by 
any given library logging debug or info statements is squashed.  However, I 
still want to see problems when they appear.  WARN fits the bill.

Next, if you want more logging from a particular hierarchy, define that and 
lower logging level as desired.  Because you are only lowering the level for 
your defined hierarchy, you won't get extraneous logging from libraries other 
than those matching your hierarchy (conventionally named by package).

This is all very basic stuff.  If you haven't yet read up on Log4j, please do 
so before posting questions here.  We're happy to help, but you should 
understand the basics before posting.  If you do understand the basics and 
have posed a more nuanced question than I have given it credit for, please 
accept my apologies and explain in more detail what you are driving at.
