      Description

      This issue started happening since 1.446+ (meaning, 446, 447, 448). Apparently either jenkins core or some plugin is using slf4j, but neither Jenkins, nor the plugin ships with any slf4 implementations, resulting the in following stack trace on startup...

      Failed to instantiate SLF4J LoggerFactory
      Reported exception:

      I was able to get Jenkins to start fine by manually downloading the slf4j-simple directly from maven and putting it into WEB-INF/lib... but, without that file, Jenkins is 100% unusable.

          I'm experiencing the same issue on 1.450. I've added an attachment with the winstone log output. I launched Jenkins using:

          java -jar jenkins.war --httpPort=9000 --ajp13Port=-1

          Based on the log I suspect it's the new SSHD module (introduced in 1.446) causing the problem.

          I tried this on Tomcat 6 and 7 but couldn't reproduce this. And ditto for "java -jar jenkins.war" — it works for me.

          Those who are seeing this problem, please report your environment and versions of the relevant software so that we can diagnose this problem further.

          I wonder if you are getting the older version of slf4j-api from somewhere (such as container shared library, etc.) As discussed in http://www.slf4j.org/codes.html, missing StaticLoggerBinder is no longer an error in the version we ship in Jenkins (1.6.1).

          Bundle slf4j binding to the war.
          See the comment in war/pom.xml for detailed discussion.

          This is fundamentally a "damned if I do, damned if I don't" situation,
          but given that JENKINS-12334 is a fatal error, and the downside of
          bundling the binding jar is "multiple binding" warning, it seems like
          the lesser evil is to bundle it and risk some warnings.
