Java logging API

I have been reading an online tutorial about the Java Logging API.

I found the tutorial to be helpful, but I am having difficulty with the concept of the logger hierarchy:

Specifically, I have two classes, which I have placed in the same package:

The LoggingConfigClass, as the name suggests, configures a logger and a console handler. It displays both messages. This class works as I anticipated.

The LoggingTestClass has a logger, which has no explicit configuration. I want to take advantage of the logger hierarchy (it should behave in the same way as the logger in LoggingConfig class). This does not happen despite the fact that I have been careful about how I named the logger in each class (which I think is the deciding factor in using logging hieriarchy???).

Could somebody please point out where I have gone wrong...?
