Subject: Help with rewrite appender
To: log4j-user@logging.apache.org

Hi Good morning.

I am trying to implement Rewrite Appender logic and based on my other
conversations I understood the way I am doing below, But still I am unable
to control certain messages.

My Policy class is:
    public LoggingEvent rewrite(LoggingEvent source) {
        String msgToInspect = source.getMessage().toString();
        if (null != msgToInspect && msgToInspect.contains("///")) {
            return null;

        return new LoggingEvent(source.getFQNOfLoggerClass(),
                source.getLogger(), source.getTimeStamp(),
                source.getMessage(), source.getThreadName(),
                source.getThrowableInformation(), source.getNDC(),
                source.getLocationInformation(), source.getProperties());

My log4j.properties file I configured these lines:
log4j.appender.rewrite = org.apache.log4j.rewrite.RewriteAppender
log4j.appender.rewrite.appender-ref = R, C
log4j.appender.rewrite.rewritePolicy =

where R is RollingFileAppender and C is ConsoleAppender. Based on my logic
above. I do not want to print the lines having /// slashes in the log
message. But I am still seeing those log statements.

Am I missing anything here? Please advise.

Thank you,
