           Summary: logback.xml vs. logback-test.xml - conflicting
                    information on website

I am using latest version of logback.

I found conflicting information on the logback website.

  In case it is not found, a logback-test.xml file is searched, and used if
  If none of these files are available, logback uses its BasicConfigurator
class to create a simple default configuration that will only log to the

   http://logback.qos.ch/manual/joran.html states

  " 1. Logback tries to find a file called logback-test.xml in the classpath.
   2. If no such file is found, it checks for the file logback.xml.
   3. In case neither file is found, logback configures itself automatically
using the BasicConfigurator which will cause logging output   to be directed on
the console"
>  I think that FAQ (http://logback.qos.ch/faq.html) is correct. If it is true, while running tests using Maven (mvn test) it uses "src/main/resources" (home of logback.xml) and  "src/test/resources" (home of logback-test.xml). logback-test.xml will never override logback.xml.
