Subject Re: tomcat and log4j version - any dependency issues?
Date Tue, 01 Jun 2010 22:15:12 GMT
Thanks for sharing this info.

I was considering 1.3 version for better management - purging log files
before certain date, log4j 1.3 provides max. backup index option with
DailyRollingFileAppender. I am also looking at logrotate and cronolog for
this, but not sure if I could use it in conjunction with
DailyRollingFileAppender. Any thoughts?
