Subject RE: FileAppender and file Location & getOptions

This basically means that there is a potential bug if the setter is not used
in the setOption (instead the private var is set directly) - as there might
be extra processing that could potentially happen in subclasses.

Yes, I did mean 1.3.1 of Log4j

There is no way to set a log directory.
You want to set the actual file name.
use  fileAppender.setFile( "/foo/bar/mylog.txt")    .

Look up its usage in the javadoc for FileAppender.

Read up on the terminolgy for deprecated.  It meanswill be
discontinued/unsupported in future sometime  (not recommened for use).  The
code is still existant.

You mean log4j v1.1.3 i assume.
