I'm running tomcat with SLF4J 1.4.2 on top of Log4J (and using
jcl-over-slf4j-1.4.2.jar) and have encountered the "The method
o.a.commons.logging.impl.SLF4FLogFactory#release  was invoked." warning.

The only logging jar in my webapp currently is log4j.jar -- having the
slf4j-* jars in there doesn't appear to have made any difference.

Is this warning to be expected, or is there something I can change to work
around this?
