android – Robolectric test throwing IllegalArgumentException with no message

Questions:

RobolectricTestRunner::class in my unit tests is throwing IllegalArgumentException with no message with this stack-trace:

My unit test class:

@RunWith(RobolectricTestRunner::class)
class UnitTest {
    @Test
    fun testEncodeDecode() {
    }
}

The output stacktrace:

How to&Answers:

Going through the classes AnnotationNode and AnnotationVisitor I noticed that there is a api argument passed to the super(api) of AnnotationVisitor which was supposed to be one of Opcodes#ASM4 or Opcodes#ASM5 or Opcodes#ASM6 or Opcodes#ASM7 but the constructor was only accepting the first two.

I noticed that there are two dependencies of org.ow2.asm:asm with two different versions org.ow2.asm:asm:7.0 and org.ow2.asm:asm:5.0.4 which was the source of problem.

To resolve the issue you must force the Gradle to import only the 7.0 version like this:

android {
    allprojects {
        configurations {
            all {
                resolutionStrategy {
                     force "org.ow2.asm:asm:7.0"
                }
            }
        }
    }
}
