Subject Re: Context-wide filter not working for me
Date Wed, 07 Dec 2016 04:18:06 GMT
The documentation of the *AbstractFilter* class says differently:

/**
 * Context Filter method. The default returns NEUTRAL.
 * @param event The LogEvent.
 * @return The Result of filtering.
 */
@Override
public Result filter(final LogEvent event) {
    return Result.NEUTRAL;
}


All the other methods are marked as "Appender filter" methods, and my needs
are to intercept all messages before they reach any appender.
So maybe that's the question I need to ask - how do I filter all messages
before they reach any appender?

Thanks,
Guy
