There appears a getLogger() that will take you to the native java.util.logging instance:

From there, you should be able to call the native setLevel() of the 1.4 logger:

As I read the docs, I can have a Log4J, a JDK1.4, or a SimpleLog, depending on 1) my property file or service discovery setup, if any, or the default factory discovery method. The default method (LogFactoryImpl) will
1) give me a Log4J logger, if available
2) give me a 1.4 Logger, if available
3) give me a SimpleLog.

If I get the default SimpleLog, which implements Log, I can have SetLevel, but if I use the 1.4 logger, I do not have access to the corresponding 1.4 facility. This looks like an oversight in the definition of the 1.4 logger. I'll subscribe to the Commons lists and check this.

I think it's just setLevel() that you're looking for:

I see that you have the move to commons-logging. I was encouraged by
this because of the support for 1.4 logging, which I have started to use
in alt-design. When I looked at modifying the existing alt-design code
to use common-logging, however, I could find no way to set the logging
level on an existing logger, as there is, e.g., in SimpleLog. I can
specify a default level in (I assume - I
haven't tried it), but if I want to dynamically change the level in
response to the options with the existing implementation, I'm stumped.
