groovy – “This script or class was runnable but could not be run” – Education Career Blog

I’m getting this error when running a groovy script (GroovyRuntimeException), and the top Google results are not clear/concise enough. What exactly does this error mean?


Looking at the source, the script class does not have a main method and one of these is true:

  • It has neither a parameterless constructor not one that takes a String array
  • Or the constructor threw an exception

The stack trace should tell you which.
