Spring Boot - Error: Could not find or load main class

Answered

Hello Folks,

 

When I go to run my Spring Boot application using the little "Run" button, I get "Error: Could not find or load main class...".  When I run my jar with the command line, it starts up correctly.  Why can't the runner start my application?

 

Here is what my settings look like.

 

 

My gradle build file looks like this.

 

group 'ElasticMediaSearch'
version '1.0-SNAPSHOT'

buildscript {
repositories {
mavenCentral()
}
dependencies {
classpath("org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-gradle-plugin:1.5.6.RELEASE")
}
}

apply plugin: 'java'
apply plugin: 'eclipse'
apply plugin: 'idea'
apply plugin: 'org.springframework.boot'

sourceCompatibility = 1.8

repositories {
mavenCentral()
}
sourceCompatibility = 1.8
targetCompatibility = 1.8

dependencies {
compile("org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-web")
compile("org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-actuator")
testCompile("org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-test")
}

Any help is greatly appreciated.
