I am using java.util.Logging in my application. I want to log all the info and error messages into a log file. In this no problem for me. But in addition to logging into the file, It will also display the same log messages on the console.How to stop the console messages.Please help me out.

Thanks,
Bhuvani

As this has nothing to do with HTML, I have moved it to a more appropriate forum.

Logging to the console is the default behavior and is specified in a properties file in jre/lib dir.

In this java.util.logging article Jason Hunter says to create your own properties file to use instead and specify it with a system property:

java -Djava.util.logging.config.file=mylogging.properties MyClass

The LogManager Javadoc API mentions this and another option for configuring.

Thanks,
I got it by using setUseParentHandlers(false)for Logger object.
