1.1.50 JS compiler requires kotlin-reflect?


#1

After updating kotlin to 1.1.50 js compiler suddenly fails with this (truncated) stacktrace

Caused by: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: kotlin.reflect.jvm.internal.KClassImpl.getData()Lkotlin/reflect/jvm/internal/ReflectProperties$LazyVal;
        at kotlin.reflect.full.KClasses.getMemberProperties(KClasses.kt:149)

        at org.jetbrains.kotlin.gradle.tasks.Kotlin2JsCompile.callCompiler$kotlin_gradle_plugin(Tasks.kt:455)

Is it a bug or new feature?


#2

Yes, the compiler itself uses kotlin-reflect. How do you run the compiler? From command line, gradle or anything else?


#3

Looks like the reason was old gradle version. 3.2.1.
Updating to 3.5 or 4.2 seems to fix error.
