Subject Re: how do i delete log files

On a Unix-like platform, you can just write your log files to the / 
tmp directory which will be deleted on the next restart.  You can use  
"${java.io.tmpdir}" in a configuration file to specify that in a  
platform-independent manner, but I do not believe that temporary  
directories get deleted automatically on Windows.

Or you can use a RollingFileAppender which would allow you to specify  
a maximum file size that a log file should be able grow to before  
being closed and renamed and specify the maximum number of old log  
files that should be preserved.
