Hello Greg,

Please see


for an example. You just need to replace

  RollingFileAppender<Object> rfa = new RollingFileAppender<Object>();


  RollingFileAppender<LoggingEvent> rfa =
                            new RollingFileAppender<LoggingEvent>();

and the layout variable should be of type PattenLayout (assuming that's the 
layout type you wish to use).
