Subject RE: Can custom appender override the log4j.xml configuration

Hi Aneez,

How about removing all appenders from the root logger? Or is that not what you want to achieve?
Remember that the loggers are hierarchical.

You can programmatically set the logging level of your appender.

If you don't want log4j to avoid the default initialization procedure you can set the log4j.defaultInitOverrride
system property to anything other than "false".
