Java version and error messages

I am having two problems.

  1. In my main code it says it is expecting a class or interface under "/hello" and "/".

get("/hello", (req, res) -> "Hello World"); get("/", (req, res) -> "Hello Students");

In addition, I continually need to update the modules to Java 1.8 and the target bytecode to 1.8 every time I "Refresh all Gradle Projects".

I've also had to add: compile 'ch.qos.logback:logback-classic:1.1.7' to my dependencies.

It seems like at every step there is some bug which requires lots effort and searching to figure out. Is there a better version of intelliJ IDEA. I'm using the version below and it's very frustrating. Thanks, Paul
