Rest assured with TestNG ins not working with Maven project

I added the following dependency list in pom.xml for my Rest assured project with maven:

<dependency>
<groupId>com.jayway.restassured</groupId>
<artifactId>rest-assured</artifactId>
<version>2.1.0</version>
<scope>test</scope>
</dependency>


Now I am trying to run following sample code:

import static com.jayway.restassured.RestAssured.*;
import static com.jayway.restassured.matcher.RestAssuredMatchers.*;
import static org.hamcrest.Matchers.*;
import java.util.*;
import org.testng.Assert;
import org.testng.annotations.*;

public class TestNGTest1 {

private Collection collection;

@Test
public void testGetSingleUserProgrammatic() {
Response res = get("/service/single-user");
assertEquals(200, res.getStatusCode());
String json = res.asString();
JsonPath jp = new JsonPath(json);
assertEquals("test@hascode.com", jp.get("email"));
assertEquals("Tim", jp.get("firstName"));
assertEquals("Testerman", jp.get("lastName"));
assertEquals("1", jp.get("id"));
}
}


But this is throwing error while doing
mvn test


Error is:

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-compiler-plugin:2.3.2:testCompile (default-testCompile) on project GBAppAuomation: Compilation failure: Compilation failure:
[ERROR] /home/jay/temp/GB_MVN_Proj/GBAppAuomation/src/test/java/com/glassbeam/app/TestNGTest1.java:[50,2] error: cannot find symbol

[ERROR] /home/jay/temp/GB_MVN_Proj/GBAppAuomation/src/test/java/com/glassbeam/app/TestNGTest1.java:[53,2] error: cannot find symbol


Corresponding symbols are
get
etc, which rest assured uses.

As asked here is complete error message::

Answer Source

The problem seems to be related with dependencies.

Were there any compilation errors in the IDE?

Because the interface Response from the line below (probably line 50 from the error)

Response res = get("/service/single-user");

belongs to package com.jayway.restassured.response, whereas the only imports in the class related to restassured are

import static com.jayway.restassured.RestAssured.*;
import static com.jayway.restassured.matcher.RestAssuredMatchers.*; 

And the JsonPath class from (probably line 53 from the error)

JsonPath jp = new JsonPath(json);

belongs to package com.jayway.jsonpath and also not imported. This package should be also included into the POM as a dependency:

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.jayway.jsonpath</groupId>
    <artifactId>json-path</artifactId>
    <version>0.9.1</version>
</dependency>
