Subject How to set threshod option for a appender in the configuration file?
Date Fri, 13 Mar 2009 17:42:13 GMT

The API document for AppenderSkeleton class has the following comment about the setThreshod()

"In configuration files this option is specified by setting the value of the Threshold option
to a level string, such as "DEBUG", "INFO" and so on."

I tried to add the following to the configuration file but it doesn't work. (no parsing error).
I can still log trace message through this appender. Does anybody know what is the correct
way to configure threshod for the appender?
    <appender name="Console" class="org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender" threshold="info">
        <layout class="org.apache.log4j.TTCCLayout">
            <param name="DateFormat" value="yyyyMMdd HH:mm:ss,SSS" />

BTW, I can use the same way to set the threshod at configuration level and it works as expected
(the root appender will be disabled for debug and trace)

<log4j:configuration xmlns:log4j='http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/' threshold='info'>
