There is too many reasons can result in this error. When I check the mybatis generator configuration in application.properties, it writen as this:

mybatis.configuration.map-underscore-to-camel-case=true
mybatis.type-aliases-package=com.community.mapper
mybatis.mapper-locations=casspath:mapper/*.xml

So, the reason is obvious, the classpath wrote wrong. Changing it as following, now the MyBatis generator error * Invalid bound statement (not found) fixed, and it works fine.

mybatis.mapper-locations=classpath:mapper/*.xml
