SLF4J: Class path contains multiple SLF4J bindings. message printed on console


I want to print logs on console and also write them in a file. In my scala project using akka loggers here is my build.sbt

libraryDependencies ++= Seq("org.mongodb" %% "casbah" % "2.8.0",
                            "org.slf4j" % "slf4j-simple" % "1.7.12",
                            "org.elasticsearch" % "elasticsearch" % "1.5.0",
                            "org.scalatest" %% "scalatest" % "2.2.1" % "test"
                        withSources() withJavadoc(),
                        "org.easymock" % "easymock" % "3.1" withSources() withJavadoc(),
                        "org.mockito" % "mockito-all" % "1.9.5",
                        "com.typesafe.akka" %% "akka-actor" % "2.3.6",
                        "ch.qos.logback" % "logback-classic" % "1.0.9",
                        "com.typesafe.akka" %% "akka-slf4j" % "2.3.9")

and here is a part of my code

import akka.event.Logging

val log = Logging(context.system, this)
case RegularAdminWriteInMongo =>
    log.debug("writing to mongo")"message received RegularAdminWriteInMongo")

when i run my program in sbt following message printed

Best Solution

The error message already tells you everything you need to know. The link provided in the message ( says:

SLF4J API is designed to bind with one and only one underlying logging framework at a time. If more than one binding is present on the class path, SLF4J will emit a warning, listing the location of those bindings.

Your classpath includes two bindings for SLF4J:




Make sure there is only one binding on your classpath and the warning will not be shown again.

To summarize: Remove slf4j-simple from your dependencies, logback-classic is enough.
