[jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-1101) Date based file appender

JIRA jira@apache.org

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-1101?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15964935#comment-15964935 ]

Juan Loman commented on LOG4J2-1101:

Nitpick: the error message {{When no file name is provided a DirectFilenameRolloverStrategy must be configured}} should probably say {{DirectWriteRolloverStrategy}} instead.

> I'd like to reintroduce the option of logging to a file that has the current date in it.
> For example, when the app starts up, it will start logging to myapp-20150821.log. At midnight, it starts logging to a new file named myapp-20150822.log.
> Log4j2's RollingFileAppender does not support this. In log4j2 the file appender will log to one file with a static file name, and then the content is moved over to another file.
> This used to be a feature in log4j 1.3, when using extras. I would configure it like this:
> {code}
>     <appender name="myapp" class="org.apache.log4j.rolling.RollingFileAppender">
>         <rollingPolicy class="org.apache.log4j.rolling.TimeBasedRollingPolicy">
>             <param name="FileNamePattern" value="myapp-%d{yyyyMMdd}.log"/>
>         </rollingPolicy>
>         ....
>     </appender>
> {code}
> The only way I found that it would work in log4j2 is to use the following code, but that's pretty hacky:
