Android Question

retrofit convertor factory can not access GsonConverterFactory

I have included these dependencies to my project:

compile 'com.squareup.retrofit:retrofit:2.0.0-beta2'

compile 'com.squareup.retrofit:converter-gson:2.0.0-beta1'

I have a class where I am going to access my api's via retrofit:

public static <S> S createService(Class<S> serviceClass, String baseUrl) {

Retrofit builder = new Retrofit.Builder()

RestAdapter adapter =;*/

return builder.create(serviceClass);

And now, it gives me this compile time error :

Error:(24, 17) error: method addConverterFactory in class Builder
cannot be applied to given types; required: Factory found:
GsonConverterFactory reason: actual argument GsonConverterFactory
cannot be converted to Factory by method invocation conversion

How can I solve this? I followed the documentation. What is wrong?


Try to use same version for retrofit and converter-gson - 2.0.0-beta2. You are using beta2 for retrofit and beta1 for converter.

compile 'com.squareup.retrofit:retrofit:2.0.0-beta2'
compile 'com.squareup.retrofit:converter-gson:2.0.0-beta2'

Important note!

Retrofit change its package name since 2.0.0-beta3 version. Now you should use com.squareup.retrofit2. Here is example:

compile 'com.squareup.retrofit2:retrofit:2.0.2'
compile 'com.squareup.retrofit2:converter-gson:2.0.2'
