Spring Roo bug for beginners

I did not have this issue on my macbook air but on the iMac I faced a problem when trying to build and deploy my demo app.

I would get errors like this:

As soon as I saved the modified pom.xml it downloaded the dependencies and the new “perform package” produced a working app on the tc server.

Next: more advanced demo app and then something of my own.
