Using another Logger

If you want to use another logger than Log4j 2, you can use SLF4J bridge to do that:

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.logging.log4j</groupId>
    <artifactId>log4j-to-slf4j</artifactId>
    <version>2.7</version>
</dependency>
<dependency>
    <groupId>org.slf4j</groupId>
    <artifactId>slf4j-api</artifactId>
    <version>1.7.21</version>
</dependency>

This page lists implementations you can use. Pick your favorite logger and add it as a dependency. As an example, we will use the slf4j-simple logger:

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.slf4j</groupId>
    <artifactId>slf4j-simple</artifactId>
    <version>1.7.21</version>
</dependency>
