How to suppress info output?

When I run my application, it generates this output to the console:

I would like to suppress that output.

I tried adding a call to Logger.getLogger(“com.jme3”).setLevel(Level.SEVERE) in my code, but I still get the output.

Here is my code:

package com._3dmathpuzzles.cubes;

import com.jme3.material.Material;
import com.jme3.math.ColorRGBA;
import com.jme3.scene.Geometry;
import com.jme3.scene.shape.Box;
import com.jme3.system.JmeContext;
import com.propfinancing.jme3.ScreenshotAppStateWithCallbacks;
import java.util.logging.Level;
import java.util.logging.Logger;

public class CubePuzzleGenerator extends SimpleApplication {  
  public CubePuzzleGenerator() {
  public void simpleInitApp() {
    Box b = new Box(1, 1, 1);
    Geometry geom = new Geometry("Box", b);
    Material mat = new Material(assetManager,"Common/MatDefs/Misc/Unshaded.j3md");
    mat.setColor("Color", ColorRGBA.White);
    ScreenshotAppStateWithCallbacks ssAppState = new ScreenshotAppStateWithCallbacks(
    ssAppState.setWriteImageFileCallback(new Runnable() {
      public void run() {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    CubePuzzleGenerator generator = new CubePuzzleGenerator();

Any ideas why it is still happening?

JUL is probably the worst logging framework of all logging frameworks in the world. You can bet if there was a really stupid way to do something then they would have done it that way. I avoid it like a rat infested plague.

…but one of my recollections is that every piece of code that asks for a Logger gets its own instance and will then never see configuration updates after that point.

Meaning: if you set the logging level after some piece of code (say, JME) has already got its own Logger instances then it’s too late.

If you have a main() method, try putting the setting of log levels in there instead.

Edit: also note that right below your post (would have been the top post when you created your topic) is essentially the exact same question from someone else:

Which I mention because there has already been traffic there that might be useful to you.

OK, I added your LogAdapter to my code, and it allows me to use Log4j2. But, it has some System.out.printlns which generate this output:

Setting root JUL log level to:FINE
logger config:root
Setting JUL Log: level to:WARNING

It might be best to eventually change them into logging calls instead.

That worked, but I think I prefer to use Log4j2 as you suggested in the other thread.

Thanks for your help!
