I have a minor problem with logback (version 0.99). When I undeploy my web
application the log files are still locked and they remain locked (under

How is this supposed to work? Is this expected behavior, or does that mean I
have a resource leak in my application? I see appenders do have stop method,
but I didn't find any overall shutdown method in Logback. How is log file

I have logback.xml in my classpath and I'm not doing any explicit

Many thanks for any help.
