I can't seem to set the log level on my package

I have a class that uses alot of other classes. All these other classes are littered with logging on low levels.

I would like to suppress all logging by setting the default level for the ConsoleHandler to WARNING. Then I want to set the logging level to FINE on my package and only my package. Is that possible?

My looks like this (I have verified throught testing that this is the file used by the code):

As you can see, I only use a ConsoleHandler and I'm trying to set all logging to WARNING and then set the level to FINE on my package only.

The problem is that the level WARNING seems to apply on my package to. If I lower "java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler.level" to FINE, my logs are logged to the console but if I raise it to WARNING they are not.

Any suggestions? It seems to me that this should be simple but no matter what I've tried it hasn't worked

I would be thankful for your help.

Best regards,
I agree. Here's the link:
