Android annotations and applicationIdSuffix

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I’d been trying out Android annotations recently and everything had been working well until I decided to add applicationIdSuffix in buildTypes in my build.gradle file. Currently it looks like this:

buildTypes {
    debug {
        applicationIdSuffix '.debug'
    }

    ...
}

And upon compiling I get the following log in gradle console:

:app:preDebugBuild UP-TO-DATE
:app:checkDebugManifest
:app:preReleaseBuild UP-TO-DATE
:app:pre_testBuild UP-TO-DATE

I’ve tried cleaning and rebuilding again, removing generated directory from the project, but nothing helps. If I remove applicationIdsuffix from build.gradle file, everything works fine. How can I fix this problem?

How to&Answers:

Remove this line from your build.gradle file:

resourcePackageName android.variant.applicationId

Edit: try to add this line to your apt block:

resourcePackageName "org.me.myapp"

Answer:

For me this was happening because google-services.json was referring to my production package name. The best solution at the time of this writing seems to be to either write your own gradle tasks to switch between release and debug versions of the file, or to include both package names in the file:

google-services.json for different productFlavors
