Unable to launch spring boot for M220J first ticket

Hey, I keep getting an error whenever I try to launch the spring boot application from the M220J course. I’ve downloaded the course material multiple times and triple checked that I’ve followed the instructions correctly. Hopefully this error log can tell someone out there what I did wrong, and thanks in advance for the help!

Thank you so much! I was using the wrong format to connect to my cluster. It works perfectly now.
