Yeah, that's kind of harsh, but it's how I feel after spending the past 4 hours trying to get the
ADONetAppender to work.
First off, has anyone used this thing before? There are hardly any useful examples available - both with log4net and accessible via Google. Second, who wrote the documentation for this tool? Maybe I'm spoiled after spending a lot of time working on advanced NAnt scripts, but the log4net documentation is worthless. I shouldn't have to read an 8 page, 3000 word document to get an intro to the tool. That's ridiculous. All I want is a “Getting Started” link that will walk me through setting this stupid thing up. Is that too much to ask for? I know a few people who've used log4j and they were saying how easy it was to setup. I don't know what happened in the conversion, but this is pitiful.
Anyway, I can't even tell if the thing is on or what. I setup the config file based on what was provided in the help docs and that doesn't seem to help at all. I tried specifying the wrong config section handler, but that didn't break anything, so I'm guessing that I have something setup wrong.
Unless someone severely works on the crap4docs that come with this tool, I don't see how anyone can get this to work. If someone knows of a good resource that might help, please let me know. I really don't want to sign up on the email list to figure out this one small issue and probably get tons more email that I don't care about.
