[logback-user] Retrieving the log filenames

Hi all,

I'm currently using Logback (SLF4J) with a TimeBasedRollingPolicy defined in
logback.xml. Everything works fine, however, I'd like to retrieve the
filenames of the current logging session since the application started. The
user can obviously change the log filenames and policies in logback.xml, so
I don't want them hardcoded in the source. My goal is to retrieve these
filenames straight within Java in order to do some more processing with
them. Is there any possibility in logback/slf4j to retrieve those names?

I currently aquire the logger via:
Logger logger = LoggerFactory.getLogger(Test.class);

but obviously, this Logger object in particular doesn't provide such
functionality. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
