Hi Piotr,
Thanks for the response.
Yes. Below is the actual code which I am using to set the log level.
*Configurator.setlevel("com.thridparty",Level.DEBUG); *

I see this problem happens only on my wildfly deployment whereas it is
working in standalone mode. am using the  -Dlog4j.configurationFile
property and my log4j2.properties files and my log4j2.properties file looks

appenders = console,thirdparty
appender.console.type = Console
appender.console.name = STDOUT
appender.console.layout.type = PatternLayout
appender.console.layout.pattern = %d{yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm:ss} %-5p [%c] %msg%n

appender.thirdparty.type = RollingFile
appender.thirdparty.name = Thirdparty
appender.thirdparty.layout.pattern=%d %-5p [%c] (%t) %msg%n
appender.thirdparty.policies.type = Policies
appender.thirdparty.policies.size.type = SizeBasedTriggeringPolicy
appender.thirdparty.strategy.type = DefaultRolloverStrategy
appender.thirdparty.strategy.fileIndex = min
appender.thirdparty.strategy.max = 8

logger.maverick.appenderRefs = Thirdparty
logger.maverick.appenderRef.file.ref = Thirdparty

rootLogger.level = ERROR
rootLogger.appenderRefs = console
rootLogger.appenderRef.stdout.ref = STDOUT

However, What i noticed is, the Configurator.setLevel() method's
Logger.getContext has a different reference id whereas the actual class's
LoggerFactory.getLogger(class) has a different context id. I guess, because
of this, the update does not send the notification properly so that the
actual change is not reflected. Attached the snapshot, the first image is
for the level setting using *Configurator.setlevel(*) and the second image
is the actual class where actual logs are printed.
what i noticed is, when the
