Synchronize Gradle projects with workspace failed



I’ve the Spring Tool Suite v3.8.3 and its component Spring IDE v3.8.4.201702201939-CI-B1500. I’ve also the Gradle Buildship v2.0.

I created a project with JHipster v4.0.5 but is not possible to import it. (there were not errors before the Gradle Buildship 2). Below the error:

Synchronize Gradle projects with workspace failed due to an unsupported configuration in the referenced Gradle build. Project at ‘C:wsTesta’ can’t be named ‘testa’ because it’s located directly under the workspace root. If such a project is renamed, Eclipse would move the container directory. To resolve this problem, move the project out of the workspace root or configure it to have the name ‘Testa’.

org.eclipse.buildship.core.UnsupportedConfigurationException: Project at 'C:wsTesta' can't be named 'testa' because it's located directly under the workspace root.

Any help?

Thanks Regards, Andrea

Answer

So I noticed that the “settings.gradle” file was setting the root project name, and after the project rename, it still had the old name. Once I changed that name to the new name and refreshed the project, that error went away.
