    Description

      See https://github.com/apache/logging-log4j2/pull/59

      Prior to this patch, the following config threw NPE at parent.mkdirs() because parent was null when using e.g.:

              <RollingRandomAccessFile name="FILE"
                                       fileName="foo.log"
                                       filePattern="foo-%d{yyyy-MM-dd}-%i.log.gz"
                                       immediateFlush="false">
      

      while this config did not:

              <RollingRandomAccessFile name="FILE"
                                       fileName="foo.log"
                                       filePattern="./foo-%d{yyyy-MM-dd}-%i.log.gz"
                                       immediateFlush="false">
      

      e.g. by adding ./ in front of the filePattern value.
