Bug Fix Advisory slf4j bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:1239-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-09-07
Last updated on: 2013-02-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

Updated slf4j packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 6.

The Simple Logging Facade (SLF4J) for Java serves as a simple facade for various
logging APIs allowing the end-user to plug in the desired implementation at
deployment time.

This update fixes the following bug:

* The slf4j packages contained a non-functional dummy API implementation which
was not supposed to be used. This dummy implementation was always selected
instead of other implementations and UnsupportedOperationException was thrown.
The dummy API implementation has been removed, so that user-supplied
implementation is now always chosen, and slf4j works as expected. (BZ#831933,
BZ#828644)

All users of slf4j are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.
