Subject [jira] [Created] (LOG4NET-526) Add appSetting conversion pattern to PatternString
Date Sun, 02 Oct 2016 17:21:20 GMT
Joe created LOG4NET-526:

             Summary: Add appSetting conversion pattern to PatternString
                 Key: LOG4NET-526
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4NET-526
             Project: Log4net
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 1.2.15
            Reporter: Joe
            Priority: Minor

A common requirement is to be able to define a base directory for log files that can be used
by multiple FileAppenders.  In this way, the directory only needs to be changed in one place.

Today the typical solution is to use a PatternString with a property that is set in code before
log4net is configured, e.g.

      <file type="log4net.Util.PatternString" value="%property{LogDIr}MyFile.log"/>

Suggested feature is to allow a conversion pattern that reads the base directory name from
an appSetting, e.g.:

      <file type="log4net.Util.PatternString" value="%appSetting{LogDIr}MyFile.log"/>
