I am using Log4j. In configuration file(XML File), i am using RollingFileAppender... i am generationg output log file(AppINFO.log) based on maxFileSize property. Can i include or append Date pattern in output log file name dynamically.
In the above XML code...need to append Date pattern in file name, i.e:
<param name="File" value="C:/temp/AppINFO.<Year&Date>.log"/>
Can anyone please help me on this?
Thanks in advance,

You will probably need to use a custom appender.
I have not tried this out, but there is a code snippet and example configuration of a "Timestamp File Appender" on the log4j wiki's Useful Code section. It looks pretty old, so may need updating to use with a newer version of log4j.
