Best logger inheritence tutorial.
Explained very nicely with a simple example.

Can u plz explain output, with following log4j.properties :-
==================================================================
log4j.rootLogger=WARN, stdout

# Global Threshold - overridden by any Categories below.
log4j.appender.stdout.Threshold=DEBUG

# Categories
#log4j.category.com.mobilefish=FATAL
#log4j.category.com.mobilefish.bean=INFO

log4j.appender.stdout=org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender
log4j.appender.stdout.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.stdout.layout.ConversionPattern=%5p [%c{1}] %M - %m%n
==================================================================

Output don't have DEBUG and INFO messages.

Thanks,
Rits

Sir,

I have been looking for a proper explanation for the purpose of Log4j.category for atleast few hours. This post was brilliant and gave me a pefect insight into the matter. I couldn't find such a simple way of desciribing the facts even at the Apache log4j official website.

Thanks,
Ajith

Sorry, but is the destination not defined by

log4j.appender.stdout=org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender

Means the category has nothing to do with the output target.
