> I found conflicting information on the logback website.
>    http://logback.qos.ch/faq.html  states
>   "If a file called logback.xml is found in the classpath, then it is used.
>   In case it is not found, a logback-test.xml file is searched, and used if available.
>   If none of these files are available, logback uses its BasicConfigurator class to create a simple default configuration that will only log to the console."
>    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.
