Hello,

I'm experiencing some issue with the logger slf4j which is being used into sever classes into my project.
Even if I configured the logger in order to write into a specific file, it prints into SystemOut.log.

I am pretty sure it could be a jar conflict, but I cannot figure out what jar can be removed and what jar has to stay there.

Here's the list of the (logging) jars I am using in the project:
slf4j-api-1.6.4.jar
log4j-1.2.15.jar
commons-logging-1.2.jar
logback-classic-1.0.0.jar


Even if I change the appender-ref, only to go to a specific appender (RollingFileAppender - to another file), it doesn't work.

Can somebody help me to debug such a mess please?

You're missing the bridge between SLF4J and Log4J (slf4j-log4j12-1.6.4.jar).

Just a hint by the way: upgrade to at least version 1.7. That added varargs so you don't have to manually create arrays if you want to have more than 2 arguments to your logging methods.

Thanks a lot Rob,

I've added slf4j-log4j12-1.7.12 as dependency, and upgraded slf4j-api to 1.7.12 as well.
Nothing has changed yet, but this is what I can see in the Console when the webapp starts:


SLF4J: Class path contains multiple SLF4J bindings.
SLF4J: Found binding in [jar:file:/apache-tomcat-7.0.34/wtpwebapps/webapp-test/WEB-INF/lib/logback-classic-1.0.0.jar!/org/slf4j/impl/StaticLoggerBinder.class]
SLF4J: Found binding in [jar:file://apache-tomcat-7.0.34/wtpwebapps/webapp-test/WEB-INF/lib/slf4j-log4j12-1.7.12.jar!/org/slf4j/impl/StaticLoggerBinder.class]
SLF4J: See http://www.slf4j.org/codes.html#multiple_bindings for an explanation.

Of course, I've already performed a search on google about it, but after many attempts, I wasn't able to solve.
Removing logback-classic from my pom.xml causes no logging at all both in systemout and the log file configured.

Do you have Log4J configured to do any logging?

Yes, of course:

here's the log file:


EDIT: this is what I see after removing logback-classic from the pom.xml file.
log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoader).
log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.

This is a spring-mvc web application by the way.

After playing a little bit within the web.xml configuration and removing logback-classic, I figured out how to get the logger working:
