[jira] Updated: (LOG4NET-99) File locking issues Graham (JIRA) Fri Oct 27 12:01:24 2006

     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4NET-99?page=all ]

Graham updated LOG4NET-99:

    Description:     (was: Hi,

I wonder if you can throw some light / provide a solution for the problem which 
I am having using Log4Net under .NET 2.0 (v 1.2.10) (problem also seems to 
occur under v1.2.9) After setting up a logger to log to the console, provide 
trace output and to log to an XML file using a minimal lock, the following 
calls are fine...
(i.e. both messages find their way to the file)


this is also works without a problem 


however if I do the following; 


the second message never gets written to the file. The console error stream 
tells me it was due to a locking problem. The exact message as follows; 

"log4net:ERROR [RollingFileAppender] Unable to acquire lock on file 
C:\Tests.XML. The process cannot access the file 'C:\Tests.XML' because it is 
being used by another process."

In addition, if I attempt to open a stream to the file after making a logging 
call then an exception will be thrown (message similar to above)
UNLESS I open one which is read only

I have also found that although log4net seems to be able to deal with problem 
when two calls are made in the same scope at the same threshold, (i.e. it will 
write both messages to the file), but trying to open a stream to the file 
inbetween calls still throws an exception.
