Can someone help me out here.

My requirement is to set up a call back mechanism from the Log4J
framework into my application when the last log file is about to be
created. I basically want to notify that the logs are nearing full via
an email when the last file is just being written.
Is this possible to achieve in the Log4J framework? How would I
approach this.

Sure. Writing a subclass of the appender you are using now would be the typical approach. You have not only the API documentation for the appender, but also its actual source code, so that should make it easy for you to figure out what methods to override.

Thanks Paul. I am looking at the rollOver() method of the RollingFileAppender class.
