log4net and the GAC

Just curious - do people work with log4net with assemblies they put in the
GAC? Without a fully qualified path, where would an assembly in the GAC be
looking? e.g.
[assembly: log4net.Config.XmlConfigurator(ConfigFile = "app.log4net", Watch
= true)]
indicates where to find the log4net config; usually this would be colocated
with the app.

When you put the assembly in the GAC, what is the relative location then?
Is the only option to use fully qualified paths?

Hi Mark,

I'm not familiar with log4net, but I think this will depend on how the
attribute interpret the ConfigFile property. If it's using current
AppDomain's base directory, then it should be able to use your program's
path regardless if the library resides in GAC or not.

Anyway, you may need to consult the log4net's documentation or refer to its
source code for more information.

Hello Mark,

Why not just add reference to the log4net from GAC and use the simple [assembly:
XmlConfigurator()] ?
