newbie - log4net deletes my config file!
2005-11-01 20:47:38 GMT
I'm a .net and log4net newbie working thru the tutorial at http://www.codeproject.com/csharp/log4net_intro.asp
First example, logging to console with no config file, works fine. 2nd example, using a small config file, I see two problems.
The main problem is that my config file is deleted from the system when I run the project. Here is the complete code of the project:
public class MainTestClass
private static ILog logger = LogManager.GetLogger(typeof (MainTestClass));
static MainTestClass ()
static void Main(string args)
logger.Debug("Here is a debug log.");
logger.Error("... and a non-fatal error.");
logger.Fatal("... and a fatal error.");
When I look into the file directory where the exe file lives, I see that file "log4netConsoleTest.exe.config' exists. When I run the project and stop at the 'LogManager.GetLogger' line, and then look again into the file directory, the config file is gone! If I restore the file into the directory at that time, then the logging works as expected.
if I don't restore the file, log4net write this to the console:
"log4net:ERROR XmlConfigurator: Failed to find configuration section 'log4net' in the application's .config file. Check your .config file for the <log4net> and <configSections> elements. The configuration section should look like: <section name="log4net" type="log4net.Config.Log4NetConfigurationSectionHandler,log4net" />"
I think that is also a problem. It apparently can't find the file (cause it doesn't exist), but instead of saying 'file not found', it says it can't find certain chars inside the file. I'd like the error message to include the fully qualified name of where it looked for the file.
All help appreciated,
