Description Ariel Constenla-Haile 2012-10-15 04:32:10 UTC
The current configuration for loggers (org.openoffice.Office.Logging) only allows in the FileURL substitution of variables understood by the PathSubstitution service, and the logger name. This results always in the same file name, thus being the file always overwritten.

There might be components wanting to create a unique logger file name, not overwritten in the next office run.

"arielch" committed SVN revision 1398194 into trunk:
#i121216# - Allow unique logger file name
Comment 2 Ariel Constenla-Haile 2012-10-15 04:39:52 UTC
Fixed by adding the following additional variables:

$(date) - the current date
$(time) - the current time
$(datetime) - the current date time
$(pid) - the process identifier

These can be used in the FileURL to generate a file name that is likely never going to be overwritten:
