I have a J2EE project using LOG4J running on IBM WebSphere Server (WAS). I don't understand why I can't disable the INFO log by defining the log priority as WARN for a package. Shown below is the snippet of my log4j.properties:

# The INFO log in Java classes in package com.testing should be suppressed

and I use the followings to define the logger:

import org.apache.commons.logging.Log;
import org.apache.commons.logging.LogFactory;

Log log = LogFactory.getLog(Test.class);

log.info("This is INFO"); // it should be suppressed
log.warn("This is WARNING"); // it can be shown

When I run the Java class in WAS, the INFO log still appear. However, the INFO log didn't show up when I run it as ordinary Java Application.

What's wrong?
