Android The Solution: Persisting Data

Hi there! The title of my Question is The Solution: Persisting Data.

I was trying to copy and paste the code from teachers notes but android studio is not accepting it properly and not syncing the given code. I tried to write the code word to word but its showing the same error. The code is as follows:

implementation 'android.arch.lifecycle:extensions:1.1.1' implementation 'android.arch.persistence.room:runtime:1.1.1-rc1' kapt 'android.arch.persistence.room:compiler:1.1.1-rc1' }

Hi Anas. If you're still stuck:

  • Try changing the dependency version to 1.1.1 (stable version) for the last 2 dependencies

    implementation 'android.arch.lifecycle:extensions:1.1.1' 
    implementation 'android.arch.persistence.room:runtime:1.1.1' // here
    kapt 'android.arch.persistence.room:compiler:1.1.1'  // and here 

    The stable version was released after that course was made.

  • Make sure you have

    apply plugin: 'kotlin-kapt'

    at the top of that same build.gradle file

Hope that helps :)
