How to turn off logging to console

My log4j.properties file look like this:

log4j.rootLogger=INFO, R1,R2,R3,R4,R5

# ***** R is set to be a RollingFileAppender.
log4j.appender.R1=org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender
log4j.appender.R1.File=/../debug.log
log4j.appender.R1.threshold=DEBUG
# ***** Max file size is set to 1000KB
log4j.appender.R1.MaxFileSize=1000KB
# ***** Keep one backup file
log4j.appender.R1.MaxBackupIndex=1
# ***** R uses PatternLayout.
log4j.appender.R1.layout=..
log4j.appender.R1.layout.ConversionPattern=..

same to info, warn, fatal and so on.

I never specified Console Appender, But still it is writing to the console, How to turn off the console logging?

is the logging coming from log4j?
may be classes writing to stdout

I am actually using Spring, which internally uses commons-logging.jar to log which i want to disable. The logging it is shown in the code snippet.
container config? I am using WebSphere. Please suggest.

Since Spring uses commons-logging.jar i put commons-logging.properties and simplelog.properties with the properties said in http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/jdev/tips/mills/Struts-logging.html . Spring is logging only for error messages after that. i got it thanks for your time.
