Thanks for your reply ... I found the problem ... my priorities where defined
the other way around. I mean the highest priority the lowest int_value they had
... so I had to overwrite the isGreaterOrEqual() method of the Priority class.
But now I have another problem (... the usual life of a programmer :)) ...), it
works fine with the property file  "log4j.category.Cat=ALERT#MyProperty, A1"
but not with my xml file "<priority class="MyPriority" value="alert"/>" . When I
turn de debug option at the command line -Dlog4j.debug then I can see that the
xml file is correctly being parsed but he set category to DEBUG default value
Is there something wrong with my xml synthax? Can I assign one of my priorities
to the root category?
