Spring-boot run error

Hi, My spring-boot does not run successfully. I have difference in application files in the video and on my IDE In the gradle tool window Giftlib>applications i have only one file where in video there are many.

Following is my code

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

buildscript { repositories { mavenCentral() } dependencies { // https://mvnrepository.com/artifact/org.springframework.boot/spring-boot-gradle-plugin classpath group: 'org.springframework.boot', name: 'spring-boot-gradle-plugin', version: '1.5.1.RELEASE' } } apply plugin: 'java' apply plugin: 'spring-boot'

sourceCompatibility = 1.5

repositories { mavenCentral() }

dependencies { // https://mvnrepository.com/artifact/org.springframework.boot/spring-boot-starter-web compile group: 'org.springframework.boot', name: 'spring-boot-starter-web', version: '1.5.1.RELEASE' } group 'com.godfather' version '1.0-SNAPSHOT'

apply plugin: 'java'

sourceCompatibility = 1.5

repositories { mavenCentral() }

dependencies { testCompile group: 'junit', name: 'junit', version: '4.11' }

THIS IS IN appconfig

package com.Godfather.giftlib;

import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication; import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.EnableAutoConfiguration;

@EnableAutoConfiguration public class AppConfig { public static void man (String[] args) {

Check this answer.

All is there. TL;DR;

DO NOT use buildscript with Gradle 3+ and spring-boot > 1.4

Example with plugins notations see in the answer above.

If answer there will not help, post the link to GitHub Project, so that I can reproduce error myself.

PS: Small note. Junit is better to be set 4.12 as well

As far as I remember, since SB 1.4 it complains that Junit dependencies has to be changed to AT LEAST 4.12
