Maven Class path error multiple SLF4J bindings

classpathlog4jmavenmaven-2slf4j

I have been getting this error while trying to do a MAVEN INSTALL. I tried exclusions, but not sure the where to include in pom file. Let me how and what exclusion tags should i include in my pom file. I am also attaching my pom file snippet where to include the exclusions`SLF4J: Class path contains multiple SLF4J bindings.

SLF4J: Found binding in
[jar:file:/C:/Users/147188/.m2/repository/ch/qos/logback/logback-classic/1.2.3/logback-classic-1.2.3.jar!/org/slf4j/impl/StaticLoggerBinder.class]

SLF4J: Found binding in
[jar:file:/C:/Users/147188/.m2/repository/org/apache/logging/log4j/log4j-slf4j-impl/2.10.0/log4j-slf4j-impl-2.10.0.jar!/org/slf4j/impl/StaticLoggerBinder.class]

SLF4J: See http://www.slf4j.org/codes.html#multiple_bindings for an
explanation. SLF4J: Actual binding is of type
[ch.qos.logback.classic.util.ContextSelectorStaticBinder]

Best Solution

1 Run

mvn dependency:tree

to see which package import org.slf4j

2 keep one, and exclude other

   <exclusion>
        <groupId>org.slf4j</groupId>
        <artifactId>slf4j-log4j12</artifactId>
    </exclusion>
