others-how to solve 'Could not resolve all files for configuration' problem ?

Problem

When we run a spring boot with gradle application, sometimes, we get this error or warning message:

Execution failed for task ':app9:compileJava'.
> Could not resolve all files for configuration ':app9:compileClasspath'.
   > Could not find org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-jpa:.
     Required by:
         project :app9

Possible solution:
 - Declare repository providing the artifact, see the documentation at https://docs.gradle.org/current/userguide/declaring_repositories.html

The core error is :

Could not resolve all files for configuration xxx
Could not find org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-jpa

Why does this error happen?

Environment

  • jdk 8
  • gradle 6.x

Our build.gradle is as follows:

dependencies {
	  ...
    implementation 'org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-jpa'
    ...
}

Reason

Please pay attention to the dependency org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-jpa, it does not exist!!!

Solution

We should change the name of the starter , change from org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-jpa to org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-data-jpa :

Change your build.gradle:

dependencies {
    implementation 'org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-data-jpa'
}

Run the app again, the error messages disappear.

It works!
