Context initialization failed - NoSuchMethodError: AntPathMatcher.setCaseSensitive()

After configuring spring security in my spring mvc application I get the follow error when running it:

org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'springSecurityFilterChain' defined in class path resource [org/springframework/security/config/annotation/web/configuration/WebSecurityConfiguration.class]: Bean instantiation via factory method failed; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.BeanInstantiationException: Failed to instantiate [javax.servlet.Filter]: Factory method 'springSecurityFilterChain' threw exception; nested exception is java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.springframework.util.AntPathMatcher.setCaseSensitive(Z)V

here are my dependencies in
build.gradle


dependencies {
compile 'org.springframework.security:spring-security-web:4.1.1.RELEASE'
compile 'org.springframework.security:spring-security-config:4.1.1.RELEASE'
compile 'org.springframework.security.kerberos:spring-security-kerberos-web:1.0.1.RELEASE'
}


My suspicion is that there is some sort of interference between the spring dependency downloaded by gradle, and the spring jars that exist in my project. The project I am working on requires that the core spring framework exist within the project itself and not downloaded via gradle. It uses
spring-core-4.1.4

Answer

The setCaseSensitive() method of AntPathMatcher does not exists on spring-core-4.1.x. You have to use the 4.2.x version. See the AntPathMatcher on 4.1.X.RELEASE and AntPathMatcher on 4.2.X.RELEASE.
