java studio Android Plugin for Gradle 3.0.0:Could not find com.google.http-client:google-http-client-parent:1.24.1



google cloud endpoints python (8)

I had to migrate my android project to new version of Android Studio and Android pluging for Gradle.

I followed all instructions at https://developer.android.com/studio/build/gradle-plugin-3-0-0-migration?utm_source=android-studio#new_configurations but when sync and build, i got a build error related to google-http-client-parent:1.24.1 stating it is not present in repositories Maven or Jcenter (indeed this version doesnt exist yet)

In my app gradle i am only using com.google.http-client:google-http-client-android:1.23.0 and i have no libraries with such 1.24.1 version so after hours of research i still dont understand the origin of this error.

The log is as per below :

Answer #1

Try using a different library for eg google-api-client-android:1.22.0 this should work


Answer #2

As the com.google.http-client:google-http-client-parent:1.24.1 has been removed from the maven central repository, it started throwing the error.

In such case, whatever the jars using this reference, can be downgraded to point the older version of google-http-client-parent. That could solve the problem for now.

In your case, com.google.appengine.tools:appengine-gcs-client:0.4.4 is using the reference of com.google.http-client:google-http-client-parent:1.24.1

Try downgrading it to 0.4 that should solve the problem.

Hope this helps!



Answer #4

Solved for me!

if you have this line in your gradle

      compile 'com.google.api-client:google-api-client-android:+'

change it to

      compile 'com.google.api-client:google-api-client-android:1.22.0'

or any other valid version in place of 1.22.0


Answer #5

maintainer for com.google.http-client:google-http-client-parent here. During a release yesterday, a pom.xml was somehow released. All other artifacts seem fine AFAICT minus this one pom. Sincere apologies for the hassle.

We have pushed a fix to this problem (manually release the missing pom.xml). Please try now and let me know if 1.24.1 does not work. We generally track issues at https://github.com/google/google-http-java-client/issues.


Answer #6

I had this issue with maven in an app engine project today, one of the third party libraries I am using appengine-gcs-client depends on the library google-http-client and its using version 1.24.1 which obviously had been removed as you can see from other answers.... Here is how I solved it using maven

I excluded the google-http-client from the library that depends on it i.e appengine-gcs-client using the following xml code in my pom.xml

   <dependency>
        <groupId>com.google.appengine.tools</groupId>
        <artifactId>appengine-gcs-client</artifactId>
        <version>0.7</version>
        <exclusions>             
            <exclusion>
                <groupId>com.google.http-client</groupId>
                <artifactId>google-http-client</artifactId>
            </exclusion>
        </exclusions>
    </dependency>

then I give maven the version to use when the google-http-client library is required, this version is just a back dated version from version 1.24.1 which is 1.23.0

        <dependency>
            <groupId>com.google.http-client</groupId>
            <artifactId>google-http-client-jackson2</artifactId>
            <version>1.23.0</version>
        </dependency>

then just run mvn clean install

this solved the problem for me and it should work for you if you have a third party library that depends on the google-http-client-parent:1.24.1 that is missing.

you could look up how to exclude dependencies using gradle from the following link How to exclude dependencies in gradle


Answer #7

In my case the issue was with this line in the backend gradle file

compile 'com.google.appengine.tools:appengine-gcs-client:0.7'

After commenting out this and commenting the code linked with GCS my Build worked fine. It's referring to the com.google.http-client:google-http-client-parent:1.24.1


Answer #8

some one forgot to add 1.24.1 in repository so that while building the project gradle can download that, we should wait till google update the same.
