Miroslav Obradovic commented on LBCLASSIC-321:

If Logback is not the logging implementation, it simply wouldn't have any effect unless the alternative logging impl. also knows how to make use of config properties added to MDC.
The application source code would still be neat and only have slf4j compile time dependency.

On the other hand, if deployment guys still decide not to use Logback, they are doing it only to their disadvantage.
In short, the focus would be on having a single compile time dependency (slf4j). Of course, still use Logback for deployment because it is the best solution for logging.

> would it be possible to keep application depend only on slf4j at compile time, but still be able to pass context properties to logback.xml through MDC in a standalone app, assuming I take care not to get/access any loggers until I put the context properties into MDC?
> (I am aware that I could programatically get the root logger by name and cast it to logback Logger, and then set the level, and add a file appender, but this would require logback jars at compile time)
