Subject Category Priorities
Date Fri, 07 Sep 2001 10:57:02 GMT
Hi there, I have a question regarding Category Priorities.

I am using class

com.mycompany.product.MyApplication (which declares its own Category
with the same name)

and my Log4J properties file specifies a priority of DEBUG for
com.mycompany.product classes

- this is fine in use, with Log4J doing what it is supposed to.

However, if I try to obtain the Priority of my class at runtime using
cat.getPriority(), I receive a NullPointerException.

I then tried cat.getRoot().getPriority(), which works.  I haven`t
explicitly set the priority on any other com.mycompany.product classes,
yet a Priority is available.  Why does com.mycompany.product not inherit
this property?

Thanks in advance,
