log4j-over-slf4j version upgrade

The currently used log4j-over-slf4j version 1.7.5 has a bug (see http://bugzilla.slf4j.org/show_bug.cgi?id=279 )

I am currently porting a maven plugin for JiBX (see http://jibx.org ) to gradle and this bug is blocking me because JiBX code uses the missing method. The only workaround I have is replacing slf4j jars in my gradle folder with newer versions. I have tried slf4j 1.7.6 and 1.7.7 - both of them have this bug fixed.

Thanks in advance, Alexander

thanks for reporting. I’ve raised GRADLE-3167 for this to track this issue. One way to get this into the gradle code base is to provide a pull-request with a fix. Would you be interested in providing this small patch?

cheers, René

Yeah, I think I can do this. Where should I send my patch?

Simply submit a pull request to gradle repository at github.

I’ve created a pull request #328 https://github.com/gradle/gradle/pull/328
