Jsp and log4j priority control

I came across a technique for utilizing the log4j logger within jsp scripts for providing diagnostic feedback.
I was hoping I could add, e.g.,

throughout my code for development level information and when ready for production, define the priority for the package to ERROR so such messages would no longer be logged without touching code. Seemed like a clean solution.
However, the priority rule doesn't seem to work with JSPs?
In order to determine the classpath for the compiled jsp I println out the this.getClass().getName() information of the jsp.
This came back as:
(cart being the class that was generated).

so I figured adding a rule like this:

would do the trick, but when set this way I still get debug level output. Is it possible to control the priority level logging of jsps? and if so, how?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
