Grails Error: Fatal Error During Compilation (Groovy Grails Tool Suite)

Fatal error during compilation org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanDefinitionStoreException: Failed to read candidate component class: URL [jar:file:/Users/lrussell/.grails/ivy-cache/org.grails/grails-hibernate/jars/grails-hibernate-2.2.4.jar!/org/codehaus/groovy/grails/compiler/gorm/GormTransformer.class]; nested exception is java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/springframework/core/type/classreading/AnnotationMetadataReadingVisitor

First tried removing ~/.grails/

And then running the grails RunApp again. It downloaded the cache fresh, might take a while. Didn’t seem to make any difference though…

Then in the Groovy Grails Tools Suite, I went to the Grails Plugin Manager (right click project > Grails Tools > Grails Plugin Manager), showed all plugins currently installed. Some required an update, so updated everything. That worked šŸ™‚
