Subject Re: slf4j, log4j and PropertyConfigurator.configure
Date Thu, 07 Jun 2012 03:48:06 GMT

Do you have multiple copies of log4j.jar in different classloaders?  For 
instance, let's say you run under Tomcat where webapps use child-first 
classloading.  You place log4j and slf4j in WEB-INF/lib and configure Log4j 
for this classloader.  But then you also have log4j/slf4j in a parent 
classloader which didn't get configured and the code performing logging is 
also part of the parent classloader, not the webapp classloader.  In this 
case, the "no appenders could be found" message makes sense.

I'm not saying the above is exactly your situation, but possibly some 
derivation of it.
