Hi all,
Somewhere in the file we are using the below code, I got the other part of the file , but not clear on this tag, can somebody throw some light!!!

<category name="com.xxx.yyy.zzz.app.bbb">
<priority value="info"/>
<appender-ref ref="DAILY_ROLL_FILE" />
</category>

are we setting the log level to info from com.xxx.yyy.zzz.app.bbb and greater using the appender DAILY_ROLL_FILE?am i true?

thanks
Pradeep

Not sure which part is confusing you.

When the JDK 1.4 Logging API came out, log4j changed "Category" to "Logger" and "Priority" to "Level" to make the terminology for the two more similar; the old ones are deprecated in log4j version 1.2.9.

So, your xml shows a category with a priority of info which translates to a logger with a level of info. Sounds like the answer to your question is yes. That logger/category would use the appender you mention.
