Hi all, has anyone else run into unit tests failing on
app:hiltJavaCompileDebugUnitTest
step when adding
@HiltAndroidApp
to an Application? We migrated from Dagger to using Hilt, and suddenly even an example basic empty unit test is failing trying to build the HiltAndroidApp but it's confusing b/c the unit tests shouldn't need Hilt and we're not testing a class that is using Hilt. Thanks! Error:
Copy code
error: cannot find symbol return DaggerApplication_HiltComponents_SingletonC.builder()
             ^
  symbol: variable DaggerApplication_HiltComponents_SingletonC

I can try tomorrow. Going out on a limb, but have you tried a new project with hilt to see if you get the same error. It'd at least rule out that it's an issue with your codebase

Yes we have tried that, noticed that other projects with Hilt when running the
app:hiltJavaCompileDebugUnitTest
step, return
NO_SOURCE
and skip the step. No idea why our project is running the step...
Fixed! Issue was we had HiltAndroidApp specified for our application, but the gradle module it was in was specified as an android library not an android app with
apply plugin: 'com.android.library'
. We could have fixed it by changing the module to be an android app with
apply plugin: 'com.android.application'
, but instead we moved the
@HiltAndroidApp
annotation out into our actual application gradle module.
