Hello,

I am using log4j in my own own code, and, I am using the ROME library for process RSS. Does anybody know what I should put in my log4j configuration file so that only my logger.debug(...) statements go to the output, but not the debug statements that are inside ROME?

Thanks,

Adrian.

Hi  adrianbasheer!
I don't know about ROME library, I suppose that the library begins with org.rome or something is like that
if you use log4j.xml file you put the following lines
<category name="org.rome">
     <priority value="INFO"/> <-------you can use INFO, ERROR, WARN to prevent DEBUG information.
   </category>
into log4j.xml as the sub tag of <log4j:configuration> tag.
If you use log4j.properties you should use
log4j.category.org.rome = INFO, your_appender_name
