Hi everyone, it's been a while. I have setup log4j in our application. It's working fine with appender DailyRollingFileAppender and layout PatternLayout. The problem is that we have a requirement to write a header and footer for every file created.

I've Googled this and tried subclassing PatternLayout. I created override methods of getHeader() and getFooter() inside the child class. The header writes correctly - after every roll, it's always there. But the footer is never written at all... Can you please help me?
