I want to truncate priority of the logging event(DEBUG, INFO, WARN, ERROR, FATAL) from the end(not from the beginning). I am using conversion patterns like Sev_%.10p Application= "MyApp" Text= %m%n But it truncate from BEGINNING & it give me last character(G, O, N, R, L). I want only first character(D, I, W, E, F) Thanks v much, Rakesh
You have to extend pattern layout, override the createPatternParser, and create a PatternParser and a PatternConverter. Here is one I have that prints the first letter as you asked, and also prints the first 3 letters of each package level making them smaller as well.
