Dagger not generating components for /test class

I am following the guide here: https://github.com/ecgreb/dagger-2-testing-demo

I have the following setup in my app/src/main (the injection and @Provides code omitted):

public class FlingyApplication extends Application {
@Component(modules = { FlingyModule.class })
public interface FlingyComponent

public class FlingyModule

In app/src/test:

public class TestFlingyApplication extends Application {
@Component(modules = { TestFlingyModule.class })
public interface TestFlingyComponent extends FlingyComponent

public class TestFlingyModule

So far, it is nearly identical to the example github. When dagger goes to generate the code for the Component builders in src/main, they generate properly. Dagger does not, however, generate code for the Component builders in src/test.

My main build.gradle:

dependencies {
classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.1.0-alpha3'

classpath 'com.neenbedankt.gradle.plugins:android-apt:1.5.1'

My app/build.gradle

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'
apply plugin: 'com.neenbedankt.android-apt'

android {
# There is obviously more in here, but this is the custom part:
packagingOptions {
exclude 'META-INF/services/javax.annotation.processing.Processor'

dependencies {
compile 'com.squareup:otto:1.3.8'
compile 'com.android.support:cardview-v7:23.1.1'
compile 'com.android.support:recyclerview-v7:23.1.1'
compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.1.1'
compile 'com.android.support:design:23.1.1'
compile 'com.squareup.picasso:picasso:2.5.2'
compile 'com.jakewharton:butterknife:7.0.1'

compile 'com.google.dagger:dagger:2.0.1'
apt 'com.google.dagger:dagger-compiler:2.0.1'
compile 'javax.annotation:javax.annotation-api:1.2'

compile 'io.reactivex:rxandroid:1.1.0'
compile 'io.reactivex:rxjava:1.1.0'

testCompile 'com.neenbedankt.gradle.plugins:android-apt:1.4'
testCompile 'junit:junit:4.12'
testCompile 'org.robolectric:robolectric:3.0'
testCompile 'org.mockito:mockito-core:1.10.19'

So when I build, I get the
class, but not the

Something interesting I noticed is that if I switch the line:

apt 'com.google.dagger:dagger-compiler:2.0.1'
# TO
compile 'com.google.dagger:dagger-compiler:2.0.1'

I see the following when I run
./gradlew compileDebugUnitTestSources

Note: /app/build/generated/source/apt/debug/com/jy/flingy/DaggerFlingyApplication_FlingyComponent.java uses unchecked or unsafe operations.
Note: Recompile with -Xlint:unchecked for details.
:app:preDebugUnitTestBuild UP-TO-DATE
Note: /app/build/intermediates/classes/test/debug/com/jy/flingy/DaggerTestFlingyApplication_TestFlingyComponent.java uses unchecked or unsafe operations.

I don't know why it builds to intermediates and I assume that I need the build.gradle file to use
instead of
, but I can't seem to figure out how to get this to work. I know that it's absolutely possible.


You need to add following to your build.gradle file for instrumentation test:

androidTestApt 'com.google.dagger:dagger-compiler:2.0.1'

or for JUnit test:

testApt 'com.google.dagger:dagger-compiler:2.0.2'

This is required to generate Dagger code for your test components.
