Subject Re: problem regarding multi binding in slf4j
Date Fri, 16 Jun 2017 01:18:29 GMT
SLF4J only supports a single logging backend (e.g. slf4j-log4j12), when
there are multiple on the classpath it uses the first one that is found.

You want to make sure that only one logging backend is on your classpath.
You can ensure that your project only uses one logging backend by using the
Maven dependency plugin ( like
mvn dependency:tree -Dverbose

This will give you a tree of dependencies for your project. You'll want to
update your pom.xml and add exclusions for exclude any additional slf4j
logging backends that are found in the dependency tree.

Also, to get logging integration across multiple logging APIs, you'll want
to install bridges that adapt the different types of loggers to become
SLF4J loggers. More details about that on the SLF4J site

You can also find lots of similar questions with answers about this on
stackoverflow, such as how to deal with multiple backends, how to exclude a
transitive maven dependency, etc....
