Java Spring with Hibernate Integrating Hibernate with Spring Revisiting Giflib

Revisiting Giflib - Incorrect/Outdated build.gradle file

There seems to be a problem with the build.gradle file that is provided. I get the following error in my terminal:

Build file 'C:\Users\Windows 8\IdeaProjects\giflib-hibernate\build.gradle' line: 15

A problem occurred evaluating root project 'giflib-hibernate'.

Failed to apply plugin [class 'io.spring.gradle.dependencymanagement.DependencyManagementPlugin'] Could not create task of type 'DependencyManagementReportTask'.

Here's the build.gradle file provided:

group 'com.teamtreehouse' version '1.0-SNAPSHOT'

buildscript { repositories{ mavenCentral() } dependencies { classpath 'org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-gradle-plugin:1.3.3.RELEASE' } }

apply plugin: 'spring-boot'

apply plugin: 'java'

repositories { mavenCentral() }

dependencies { compile 'org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-thymeleaf' compile 'org.hashids:hashids:1.0.1' compile 'org.springframework:spring-orm:4.2.5.RELEASE' compile 'org.hibernate:hibernate-core:5.2.1.Final' compile 'org.apache.tomcat:tomcat-dbcp:8.0.32' compile 'com.h2database:h2:1.4.191' }

After a bit of fiddling around I got it working myself. Here's the build.gradle file I used:

plugins {
    id 'java'
    id 'idea'
    id 'eclipse'
    id 'org.springframework.boot' version '2.0.6.RELEASE'
    id "io.spring.dependency-management" version "1.0.6.RELEASE"

group 'com.teamtreehouse'
version '1.0-SNAPSHOT'

sourceCompatibility = 1.8

// Specify the location where our dependencies will be found
repositories {

dependencies {
    compile group: 'org.springframework.boot', name: 'spring-boot-starter-web', version: '2.0.6.RELEASE'
    compile group: 'org.springframework.boot', name: 'spring-boot-starter-thymeleaf', version: '2.0.6.RELEASE'
    compile group: 'org.hashids', name: 'hashids', version: '1.0.1'
    compile group: 'org.springframework', name: 'spring-orm', version: '4.2.5.RELEASE'
    compile group: 'org.hibernate', name: 'hibernate-core', version: '5.2.1.Final'
    compile group: 'org.apache.tomcat', name: 'tomcat-dbcp', version: '8.0.32'
    compile group: 'com.h2database', name: 'h2', version: '1.4.191'

Thank you so much!

After pulling from the github repo, just editing the gradle.build file did not work for me. After fooling around I got it to work though! All I did was delete the gradle-directory in the giflib-hibernate-directory and reloaded gradle! Gradle did download again, but it works! I had to do some minor adjustment though in the import statements.
