Android - FirebaseApp / Firebase-Initialization is not starting

I want to implement the Firebase-Messaging plugin into my Android-App.
I've started with the "quickstart-android-master/messaging"-example from github: https://github.com/firebase/quickstart-android/tree/master/messaging

This works for me!
Log-Output:

D/FirebaseApp﹕ com.google.firebase.auth.FirebaseAuth is not linked. Skipping initialization.
D/FirebaseApp﹕ Initialized class com.google.firebase.iid.FirebaseInstanceId.
D/FirebaseApp﹕ com.google.firebase.crash.FirebaseCrash is not linked. Skipping initialization
D/FirebaseApp﹕ Initialized class com.google.android.gms.measurement.AppMeasurement.
I/FirebaseInitProvider﹕ FirebaseApp initialization successful



But if I want to implement the Plugin
"com.google.firebase:firebase-messaging:9.0.2" into my app, the
FirebaseApp isn't initialized! So the FirebaseApp plugin isn't starting! - No Log or token received!


I've also added apply plugin to build.gradle file in "app"-directory:

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

android {
// ...
}

dependencies {
// ...
compile 'com.google.firebase:firebase-messaging:9.0.2'
}

// ADD THIS AT THE BOTTOM
apply plugin: 'com.google.gms.google-services'


And the google-services plugin to build.gradle in the "root" directory:

buildscript {
// ...
dependencies {
// ...
classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:3.0.0'
}
}



Problems could be:



  • AndroidAnnotations, Proguard, Product flavors...


Answer

The problem is the "Manifest Merger" of Android. If I use the

xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"

and

tools:node="replace"

in the Application Tag of the Manifest, the FirebaseApp will not be initialized!
