Hamcrest Matchers Issue

I’ve been using Rest-Assured as a simple Integration Test tool for the last few months, and suddenly I started seeing this issue.

java.lang.SecurityException: class "org.hamcrest.Matchers"'s signer information does not match signer information of other classes in the same package

I wiped my .m2 repository of org.hamcrest.Matchers jar files, and rebuilt the maven repository (mvn clean package install -DskipTests).   The problem remained.

I ran across a simple for my code (on the rest-assured site thanks to johanhaleby)

I changed the code to

import static org.hamcrest.CoreMatchers.equalsTo;

Now the code passes the tests without a problem
