[Esapi-user] ESAPI DotNet Logger and SQL Server

I was trying to set up an application to use the ESAPI .Net logger class
to log events to a text file. The only logging I had configured was a
"fileappender", but I kept getting errors indicating a failure to
connect to a local SQLExpress instance. SQL and SQLExpress are not
installed on the server, and I don't want to install them.
Does the logger class require a database connection, even if I'm just
using a FileAppender? I wound up using the log4net classes directly and
was able to get text-file logging working fine, so this seems like an
ESAPI issue (or maybe an ESAPI configuration issue).
Apologies if I missed something in the documentation about this.
