Errors after Updating Parse SDK on Android Studio

Hi All,

My code is now showing up with a bunch of errors after deleting the old parse jar file and adding a new one and I am not sure how to fix it. I added the new jar file in the exact same libs folder.

Basically anything that uses the Parse SDK has an error behind it. I tried rebuilding the project and refreshing the libs folder but it did not help.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks, Riley

What kind of errors are you getting? Classes not recognized?

OK I managed to answer this on my own. I am using Android Studio instead of Eclipse for this project and after updating my build.gradle code I was able to get this to work.

The Parse SDK said that I should add the following code:

dependencies {
    compile 'com.parse.bolts:bolts-android:1.1.2'
    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: 'Parse-*.jar')
}

After trying to use this code and re-syncing I got some errors as it could not find the com.parse.bolts:bolts-android:1.1.2 jar file so instead I changed the code to point directly to jar file like this:

dependencies {
    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: 'bolts-android-1.1.4.jar')
    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: 'Parse-*.jar')
}

Now everything seems to be working fine even though I am still not 100% sure if I have done this correctly :)

Glad you got it resolved! Be sure to mark your answer as the best one, so people perusing the forums know it's been answered.
