FWIW log4j typically only lets you turn on or off logs - or reformat
how the log information is formatted (things like thread, time, logger
and so forth); but it ultimately doesn't let you modify the text that
is logged.

How about you try modifying the LoggingInterceptor to do exactly what
you want - so it can be configured to turn on or off the message
payload being logged? We love patches and contributions!

BTW you might find the Camel Tracer interesting; it kinda does the
same thing you're trying to do - but at the Camel endpoint layer
rather than the JMS broker layer...
http://activemq.apache.org/camel/tracer.html

in particularly its highly configurable so you can turn on and off
different items to be logged.

If it helps, here's the Camel TraceInterceptor
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/activemq/camel/trunk/camel-core/src/main/java/org/apache/camel/processor/interceptor/TraceInterceptor.java?view=markup

and the TraceFormatter that configures the formatting of the trace message
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/activemq/camel/trunk/camel-core/src/main/java/org/apache/camel/processor/interceptor/TraceFormatter.java?view=markup
