Creating a basic logging wrapper for StreamInsight adapters/applications using log4net

There are many different ways of implementing logging on the Microsoft .NET platform (Trace, ETW, etc).  To provide for a range of flexibility (not necessary for this post.. just setting the stage) let’s go ahead and put together a generic logging interface that we’ll use throughout various applications (all of the code samples I post…
