The solution is described on SLF4j page. Simply you have to add slf4j-api with wersion greater than 1.5.6. In maven pom.xml you can declare slf4j explicitly:

<dependency>
<groupId>org.slf4j</groupId>
<artifactId>slf4j-api</artifactId>
<version>1.6.0</version>
<type>jar</type>
<scope>compile</scope>
</dependency>
