Android Question

Package does not exist when using separate App as a dependency

I'm trying to compile an App utilising a separate App as a dependency but when I compile referencing modules from this library I see several "error:package does not exist" and "error:cannot find symbol class" messages from graddle. The following are my two build files.

apply plugin: 'android'

android {
compileSdkVersion 19
buildToolsVersion "19.1.0"

defaultConfig {
minSdkVersion 11
targetSdkVersion 19
}

buildTypes {
release {
runProguard false
proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.txt'
}
}

packagingOptions {
exclude 'AndroidManifest.xml'
exclude 'resources.arsc'
exclude 'classes.dex'
}
}

dependencies {
repositories {
mavenCentral()
}
compile 'com.android.support:support-v4:+'
compile 'com.google.code.gson:gson:2.2.2'
compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services:+'
compile 'com.actionbarsherlock:actionbarsherlock:4.4.0@aar'
compile 'com.android.support:support-v4:+'
compile 'com.readystatesoftware.systembartint:systembartint:1.0.3'
compile 'se.emilsjolander:stickylistheaders:2.+'
compile 'com.googlecode.libphonenumber:libphonenumber:+'
compile files('libs/crashlytics.jar')
compile files('libs/httpclient-4.2.3.jar')
compile files('libs/libphonenumber-5.9.jar')
compile files('libs/mobileservices-0.2.0-javadoc.jar')
compile files('libs/mobileservices-0.2.0.jar')
compile files('libs/stringtotime-1.0.4.jar')
compile files('libs/urbanairship-lib-2.0.2.jar')
compile 'com.github.chrisbanes.actionbarpulltorefresh:extra-abs:+'
compile files('libs/FlurryAnalytics-4.0.0.jar')
compile 'com.squareup.picasso:picasso:2.3.3'
compile project(':wheel')
}


Dependency gradle:

apply plugin: 'android'

android {
compileSdkVersion 19
buildToolsVersion "19.1.0"

defaultConfig {
applicationId "kankan.wheel"
minSdkVersion 5
targetSdkVersion 7
}

buildTypes {
release {
runProguard false
proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.txt'
}
}

}


Can anyone help/experienced this before? Android Studio does not highlight any issues in the class and I can ctrl+click through to the packages referenced which seems to mean it is set up correctly...

Thanks!

Answer

You cannot have two gradle scripts using the com.android.application plugin at the same time. Change the dependency project to apply the 'library' plugin.

If that doesn't do it, change the targetSdkVersion of your dependency to that of your core project.
