I am writing my custom ECL connector but cannot get it to log my own logging statements using log4net. I placed my App.config file including log4net config next to my ECL DLL, log4net has been added to the GAC, but no luck so far. Anyone got this working or would know a way to troubleshoot?
App.config must be renamed to match the name of the primary DLL of the Provider - the DLL where you implement
Next to this ensure all assemblies required for log4net are included in the folder containing the primary DLL. Alternatively you can use the GAC, but typically this is not required so to simplify deployment I would recommend against it.
Specifically you should not place NewtonSoft.JSON in the GAC as it does not follow .NET versioning standards. Placing Newtonsoft.JSON in the GAC can break completely unrelated applications on your system.
And always consider if you can simply use
