Error: cannot find symbol class Builder (using Retrofit)

Been following this Retrofit tutorial, but I am completely stuck on this issue:


Error:(12, 46) error: cannot find symbol class Builder


Here's my file, RestAdapter.java:

package com.myapp.jobapp;

import retrofit.RestAdapter.Builder;
import retrofit.RestAdapter;

public class RestAdapter {
public static final String BASE_URL = "http://api.myservice.com";
RestAdapter restAdapter = new RestAdapter.Builder()
.setEndpoint(BASE_URL)
.build();
}


Here's what's in my build.gradle:

dependencies {
compile 'com.squareup.retrofit:retrofit:1.9.0'
}


Here's the stacktrace:

Would appreciate any help on this

Answer

I've tried your code, and the Buider is not recognized this way you are doing.

Try this:

public static final String BASE_URL = "http://api.myservice.com";

public RestAdapter providesRestAdapter(Gson gson) {
    return new RestAdapter.Builder()
            .setEndpoint(BASE_URL)
            .build();
}

Of course, this method goes inside some class. Think this class as a Module/RestClient where you configure your api. So, you can name this class AppModule, RestClient or another name you prefer.

Below, some tutorials that can be useful:
