Bamboo Specs Failing With "cannot find symbol"

I started with a very simple plan with no jobs or tasks and that worked, but when I added tasks, I'm getting


"cannot find symbol" when you try to validate the spec file.

Plan Definition:

This was taken from the tutorial page.

Plan createPlan() { return new Plan(project(), "ContainerBuild", "PLAN") .description("Plan created from Bamboo Java Specs") .stages( new Stage("Stage 1") .jobs(new Job("Run", "RUN") .tasks( new ScriptTask().inlineBody("echo Hello world!")))); }

Turns out it's because the required imports aren't being made.

Make sure the src/main/java/tutorial/ file has the following added.



Additionally, I had to change the createPlan method to

public Plan createPlan() {

 I believe it was private before and mvn test complained.

I get the same error, straight from the tutorial page.  Haven't figured it out yet.
