Subject RE: 3rd party assembly logging configuration
Date Tue, 01 May 2007 13:37:34 GMT
The root logger's name is NULL rather than empty, that is why you need
to configure it in the log4net XML config using the <root> element
rather than the <logger name=3D""> element. A logger with empty name
would be a child of the root logger.

The logger hierarchy exists within the repository. If you create your
own repository then it is completely separate to the repository and
logger hierarchy used in the main application.

Cheers,
Nicko

I assume that root logger's name is empty string, so any type name used
for
logger creation will be treated according to hierarchical rules and
independent from the "main" application.

And thank you again for fast and clear answers.
