Subject RollingFileAppender with stable filenames?
Date Sun, 14 Aug 2005 14:23:58 GMT

I'm writing a program which will frequently scan and parse log files.

I want to use RollingFileAppender to write them, but I'm not 100% happy
with its behaviour. I'd have to allow for all the filenames to change
between one scan and the next, or even, conceivably, while I'm actually
in the middle of a scan.

So I'd like a RollingFileAppender that uses stable filenames, in

my.log.1 << Deleted, because MaxBackupIndex=2
my.log.4 << Current file

Before I knuckle down and write one myself, I just thought I'd ask 
whether anyone else has done this?

I did find Geoff Mottram's DatedFileAppender, but I'm really looking for
something based on RollingFileAppender so I don't have any time-based
issues at all (some of the programs will be running in different time

Ta for any advice.
