[logback-user] Logback logging to MySQL

Hi all,

I am in the process of exploring logback so we can migrate our logging off of our current mishmash. As part of that I have been trying to configure to write to a MySQL database.

In the configuration file I have this:

  <appender name="DB" class="ch.qos.logback.access.db.DBAppender">
    <connectionSource class="ch.qos.logback.core.db.DriverManagerConnectionSource">

  <root level="DEBUG">
    <appender-ref ref="STDOUT" />
    <appender-ref ref="FILE" />
    <appender-ref ref="DB" />

And I've run the scripts to set up the tables in MySQL, and logback can apparently connect ok - if I change any of the parameters in the config I get errors about it not connecting.

On the console and in the logfile I can see output as I would expect, but the DB remains empty. I'm using MySQL 5.1.51 on a Mac, for what that's worth.
