I have a simple logging strategy but i'm not able to find a good logback 
configuration to get the right result.
My context:
-> an application which is started (and killed) every day (and run several 
hours, but not more that 1 day)

My Need
-> keep 5 days of log history (into 5 files or 5 directory with files ..)
        -> if possible zip/gzip history files
-> several intraday run must log into the same file.
-> if possible, current log file is not versionned with date prefix (or 
directory specific structure).

What i understand after reading logback documentation:
1/ use of file name which contains day information
        => OK but history are not managed (and no more compression)

2/ Rolling appender
        => Seems to not work because timebasedrolling policy suppose that 
process run many daus without stopping 

Is it right ?
Is there a solution ? if not which is the best approach.
