I get the following error:

Error:(5, 45) error: package com.example.module.activity does not exist


Referred all the following posts:

Android Studio library “error: package does not exist”

Why do packages from library module does not exist upon compilation, even when Android Studio shows no errors in code?

Package does not exist when refrencing a java module Android Studio 1.0.1

Package does not exist when using separate App as a dependency

What am I doing wrong ?

Answer Source

I found the issue:

 buildTypes {
        release {
            shrinkResources true
            minifyEnabled true
            proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
        }
    }

when I set miniFyEnabled false my issues were fixed. It's too weird as this is specified for release build type and I am debugging the application.
