Subject RollingFile appender in tomcat 7 with log4j2
Date Tue, 29 Jul 2014 05:29:53 GMT

I am trying to configure RollingFile appender in tomcat 7 with log4j2 with 5 log files.
I am using in the filePattern the ${sys:catalina.base} but in the log I see the error:

ERROR Unable to create directory C:\eclipse\    omcat7\logs

The same happen if I run tomcat from outside the eclipse (path is different but still there
is space in the path).
When I use a path which is hardcoded (C:/temp) it works.
I also tried it with catalina.base and I get the same result.
The interesting part is that the first log file (without a number) is created ok under tomcat/logs
- which means it succeeds to map the filename attribute to a real path
Here is the full appender I use:

<RollingFile name="MyLogFile" fileName="${sys:catalina.home}/logs/MyLog.log"
        <Pattern>%d{yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss} [%t] %-5p %c{3} %x - %m%n</Pattern>
        <SizeBasedTriggeringPolicy size="10KB"/>
      <DefaultRolloverStrategy max="5" min="1"/>

Thanks for the help,
