Subject Re: Reporting events back to Unit-test

I would create a special appender for the unit test runs.  I would use a 
remoting appender that the unit test could attach to and read.  As a 
separate appender does not stop the original appender(s) from also 
executing, so long as the thresholds are the same, you know that the same 
information is available in both.

Reporting events back to Unit-test


I am using NUnit and log4net, and I would like to use log4net to report 
certain events back to the unit test.

What would be the best way to do this?

It seems I can’t generate events and attach to them?

It should be possible to inspect to obtain the relevant logger, and 
it at regular intervals.

Also I need to make sure (from unit test at run-time) that what I look for 

is really logged.

One situation where I need this is when I want to test an unavailable 
connection.  This is logged anyway, and as the unit-test don’t know the 
assembly directly, it would be easiest to communicate through the
