Groovy:unable to resolve class error

I'm following a tutorial here for a product called bonitasoft.  

The tutorial calls a webservice (http://www.webserviceX.NET getWeather) and then if the call was successful, it tries to load the data onto a form for the user.

The form has a table widget and then as can be seen in the script creates rows for each key pair value brought back from the web service.

In order to do this, the form uses a grovy script to parse the data from a Map object into the table.

As I have cut and pasted the text from the tutorial onto the script which is launched on the form I can't get any further as I get the error shown in the title of this post (see file).  It creates the error in regard to "Entry".

I don't expect an answer that will make the tutorial work, I'm looking for an understanding as to why this error has been raised.  If there is something really obvious missing than I wouldn't know as I'm only following the tutorial and I'm not a groovy expert.

Thanks for reading and please get in contact with any questions that you may have.

I'm also not a groovy expert, but groovy generally follows the rules from Java and in Java the type "Entry" is internal to the Map class.

So I'd try modifying the lines where it says Entry<String,String> to be Map.Entry<String, String> and see if that works.

Another way to solve this would be adding an import statement - but I'm less clear on where those go in a groovy script.

Hope that helps,

Doug

Yes, that worked!

You can import libraries in the normal way (listed above it doesn't seem to throw an error, bonitasoft it seems is based on the eclipse IDE in that respect.

However just including Map. before made the errors go away so thanks!
