This build.gradle file works.

I am using intelliJ. I added an extra line to dependencies and it worked. Here is my build.gradle file:

plugins {
    id 'java'

group 'com.teamtreehouse.courses'
version '1.0-SNAPSHOT'

repositories {

dependencies {
    compile 'com.sparkjava:spark-core:2.9.3'
    compile group: 'org.slf4j', name: 'slf4j-jdk14', version: '1.7.29'
    testImplementation 'org.junit.jupiter:junit-jupiter-api:5.6.0'
    testRuntimeOnly 'org.junit.jupiter:junit-jupiter-engine'

test {

You might want to replace compile with implementation:

dependencies {
    implementation 'com.sparkjava:spark-core:2.9.3'
    implementation group: 'org.slf4j', name: 'slf4j-jdk14', version: '1.7.29'

compile was deprecated in one of the newer versions of gradle.
