Questions:

Following error is showing in Maven console everytime I do Project -> Clean. Only the jar file is built in the target folder, apk file is not getting built.
Can anyone please help me to solve this issue?

Regards,

Sam.

My development environment is;

  • Eclipse Helios
  • Android SDK API level 8
  • Eclipse ADT 10.0.1
  • Maven Integration for Android Development Tools 0.2.5

How to&Answers:

If your are using android maven integration, you should add the “provided” scope in your android sdk dependency.

<dependency>        
<groupId>com.google.android</groupId>        
<artifactId>android</artifactId>        
<version>2.3.3</version>        
<scope>provided</scope>        
</dependency>

Answer:

You can exclude implicit dependencies using the exclude-tag. QName seems to be in e.g. the xpp3 package. I solved this problem by adding the following exclusions to my pom (that already contained the dependency to google-api-client-googleapis):

<dependency>
  <groupId>com.google.api.client</groupId>
  <artifactId>google-api-client-googleapis</artifactId>
  <version>1.4.1-beta</version>
  <exclusions>
    <exclusion>
      <groupId>commons-logging</groupId>
      <artifactId>commons-logging</artifactId>
    </exclusion>
    <exclusion>
      <groupId>xpp3</groupId>
      <artifactId>xpp3</artifactId>
    </exclusion>
</exclusions>
</dependency>

If you need to find where the conflicting class files come from, run for example:

for x in `find ~/.m2/repository/ -name \*.jar`; do jar tf $x|grep QName.class && echo "Found in: $x"; done`
