Subject Re: TimeBasedRollingPolicy with hourly filenames not rolling over at midnight
Date Mon, 20 Oct 2008 16:59:28 GMT
Has anyone successfully used TimeBasedRollingPolicy? Would you be  
willing to share a working configuration? If I don't resolve this  
today, I'll revert to DailyRollingFileAppender and cron jobs to do the  
compression, a significantly less appetizing approach.
