This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I know that Log4j has a File appender called *RollingFileAppender* which basically have a maximum file size configured in log4j.properties. Each time the file size is reached, then log4j will log all the output to another file.
However, what about the *JDBCAppender*? If the maximum database table size(maybe? this is the part which I don't understand... Can we have such a maximum threshold to control the JDBCAppender?) is reached, how does the JDBCAppender deal with such a case?
Does it simply disallow any events being logged? Or does it create another table? Or does it do other fancy jobs(like low/high water mark?)?
Ideally we need this control because we don't want to end up with a super large table, right?
