      Description

      Hi,

      I integrated the log4j with my Android application and did the initial config. It works fine. I have a menu item in "Settings" screen where I can change the log levels in my application. So, After I change the configuration, I need to update the loggers. So I am using following logic.

      LoggerContext ctx = LoggerContext.getContext()
              Configuration config = ctx.getConfiguration();
              LoggerConfig loggerConfig = config.getLoggerConfig(LogManager.ROOT_LOGGER_NAME);
              loggerConfig.setLevel(myLogLevel);
              ctx.updateLoggers();
      

      While getting the logger context, I am getting a ClassCastException.

      05-26 22:33:21.011 E/AndroidRuntime( 9642): Caused by: java.lang.ClassCastException: org.apache.logging.log4j.simple.SimpleLoggerContext cannot be cast to org.apache.logging.log4j.core.LoggerContext
      05-26 22:33:21.011 E/AndroidRuntime( 9642): at org.apache.logging.log4j.core.LoggerContext.getContext(LoggerContext.java:190)
      05-26 22:33:21.011 E/AndroidRuntime( 9642): at org.apache.logging.log4j.core.config.Configurator.setRootLevel(Configurator.java:323)

      Please help here.
