We use the FileAppender.java class to append to the logfiles using log4j.xml. I have written a custom class which makes the log to rollover into a new file everytime the file that is being written into exceeds its limit.
But the problem I am facing is whenever the server is brought down and started again, instead of picking up the file that was last appended to, it starts writing into a new file. Is there a way to make it pick the last file that was modified and append to it?

Hi Shridhar,

Try using RollingFileAppender. Also you can configure the 'MaxFileSize' property to set the max limit of the log file.
