Can't Run with Gradle This application?

When I use bootRun from gradle I got an exception : *

What went wrong: Execution failed for task ':findMainClass'.


When I try to Run just from class AppConfig

What went wrong: Execution failed for task ':AppConfig.main()'.

Process 'command 'C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.8.0_221/bin/java.exe'' finished with non-zero exit value 1

Hello Dmitrijs, Were you ever able to get things to work with Gradle? I have not been able to get anything working with gradle and was hoping that you might have found a solution. I have just been skipping any task that uses gradle. It has really hampered my learning. I am very disappointed in gradle., and the decision by tree-house to make it part of the java track I am on.
