[logback-user] filtering by logger name in logback console plugin

HI all,

I didn't see any responses to this. Is this the wrong place to ask about the console plugin? Or has anyone had any issues like this with the EvaluatorFilter, for example?

I'm trying to use the Logback Eclipse plugin, Eclipse 3.5.2, Logback Console plugin 1.1.0. Works a charm, until I try to write any more sophisticated filters than the only example of
	Level >= INFO
and similar.

I'm trying to filter to accept DEBUG messages from my code, but deny such messages from Spring, whose loggers are called "org.springframework...".

I try the following and keep getting "The new expression is not correct." There is no error in the Eclipse error log or in the console.

(Guessing types of these supplied variables from http://logback.qos.ch/manual/filters.html#evalutatorFilter.)

Filtering on the message appears to be accepted by the config window: 

But it doesn't apply any filtering to the logger name. (Here the logger name actually gets compacted to "o.s...." but trying other, non-compacted, segments of the name doesn't help either.)

For now I can filter out things like "reating instance" or "bean", but that's hardly satisfactory.

What am I doing wrong with the logger name/event?
