Kapt build cache never cleared?


#1

I’m working on an Android project with multiple build flavors and we’re using dagger and kapt.

Whenever we’re switching branches we will always have build errors if we don’t to a gradle clean. The cause is kapt because it has in it’s cache generated/compiled classes from the other branch. This never happend with gradle when we weren’t using kotlin in our project.

It also happens if we modify classes related to dependency injection: modules, components or annotated constructors/singletons; in such a way that requires to regenerate some classes for the dependency injection to work. Kapt is probably not very aware of those changes and it won’t clear it’s cache.

I honestly don’t know what’s causing it so I can’t create a sample project where this happens but I can reproduce it very easily on my project.

What could be the problem? How can I help you help me? Is there a --debug switch for kapt to see where it checks for changes?


#2

I am seeing the same issue when switching branches and changing annotations that cause code to be generated. Hopefully @yanex can help.

It would probably be useful to include the versions of Android Gradle plugin and kapt you are using.

Here are mine:
Kotlin v1.1.60
Android Gradle Plugin v3.0.0


#3

To me it happens with kotlin 1.1.4, 1.1.50, 1.1.60 and android gradle 2.3.3


#4

Guys, can we get some help on this? On 1.2.0 our build times have increased

And now the errors:

e:

So, kapt says that the stubs have been generated, but that’s impossible because in the sources SimpleFavorable implements com.bonial.kaufda.favorites.**data**.Favorable and not com.bonial.kaufda.favorites.Favorable

Also, SimpleStringFavorable doesn’t exist anymore

So kaptGenerateStubsKaufdaDebugKotlin outputs to app/build/tmp/kapt3/incrementalData/kaufdaDebug

But the compilation error references app/build/tmp/kapt3/stubs/kaufdaDebug/com/bonial/kaufda/favorites/SimpleFavorable.java

Which that file doesn’t exist in my sources anymore (but it still exists in the stubs), it’s in the data subpackage. And I can find the correct file indeed in app/build/tmp/kapt3/stubs/kaufdaDebug/com/bonial/kaufda/favorites/data/SimpleFavorable.java

Also the package app/build/tmp/kapt3/incrementalData/kaufdaDebug/com/bonial/kaufda/favorites/ is correct in that it doesn’t have outdated files, but during branch change and recompilation, the stubs folder isn’t cleared or, in my opinion, not used altogether.


#7

I’m using

apply plugin: 'kotlin-android'
apply plugin: 'kotlin-kapt'

kapt {
correctErrorTypes = true
}

#8

I tried to create a simple sample project because I thought I could reproduce this and in there the cache is cleared correctly.

But on 2 older projects which were migrated to kotlin we can reproduce this. So it seems to be caused in complex projects.

How can I debug this more?


#9

We frequently experience similar issues, so I made a sample project with one of the repos we found.

Instructions can be found in the readme.


#10

Thanks for creating the repro project! Could you please file a YouTrack issue with the link to your project, so that we can track the resolution of this problem? Thanks!
