James Howe commented on SLF4J-192:

At the moment the best you can do is something like this
ILoggerFactory factory = LoggerFactory.getILoggerFactory();
Class<?> clazz = factory.getClass();
try {
  clazz.getMethod("stop").invoke(factory);  // logback
} catch (ReflectiveOperationException ex) {
  try {
    clazz.getMethod("close").invoke(factory);  // log4j
  } catch (ReflectiveOperationException ignored) { }

> There needs to be a way to shutdown logging and flush async appenders so when a process is closing, all log events are written before the process is closed.
> Should ILoggerFactory have a shutdown or stop method?  It could shutdown whatever logging back end I'm using?
> For log4j it would call - org.apache.log4j.LogManager.getLoggerRepository().shutdown();
> For logback it would call - loggerContext.stop()
> Other back ends - ???
> This is required to allow me to not reference logging back ends explicitly in my code to shutdown successfully without losing events.
