upgrade to later java version might help. Your issue could be you are still using java version < 9. I suggest upgrading to 11 or 17 and trying again to see if it resolves the issue.

The newer Spring Boot version upgraded Spring Integration to version 5.5.10 which introduced a bug that accidentally added a dependency on Java 9. The Spring Integration documentation says Java 8 should be supported. If you upgrade to Spring Boot 2.6.7, then you will get the Spring Integration version containing the bug fix.
