New warning when building android app with gradle

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

Yesterday it was fine, today it shows this warning when I clean or build the project:

WARNING: Ignoring Android API artifact
com.google.android:android:2.1_r1 for appDebug WARNING: Ignoring Android
API artifact com.google.android:android:2.1_r1 for appRelease

I think it was caused by an update of the gradle plugin for android.

Anyone knows what it means ?

How to&Answers:

Usually, java libraries depends on com.google.android:android if this library will be used in Android project.

Then you can exclude this module from dependencies of target Android project. Like this:

compile ('some.library.that.depends.on.android') {
    exclude group: 'com.google.android'
}

Answer:

I solved the problem by updating my version of gradle.

build.gradle (Project)

classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:+'
