If you want to get logging via log4j to work, you drop in a shim that implements log4j on top of slf4j, which is available from the slf4j project.

You do NOT configure log4j itself, I don't believe.

>Update: I got the following error even i have added dependency libs(slf4j-log4j12-1.7.5, log4j along with slf4j):

That implements slf4j calls by using log4j, you want to do the opposite, log4j over slf4j.
