Error:Conflict with dependency 'com.google.code.findbugs:jsr305' (10)

  1. The accepted answer is one way of fixing the issue, because it will just apply some strategy for the problematic dependency (com.google.code.findbugs:jsr305) and it will resolve the problem around the project, using some version of this dependency. Basically it will align the versions of this library inside the whole project.

  2. There is an answer from @Santhosh (and couple of other people) who suggests to exclude the same dependency for espresso, which should work by the same way, but if the project has some other dependencies who depend on the same library (com.google.code.findbugs:jsr305), again we will have the same issue. So in order to use this approach you will need to exclude the same group from all project dependencies, who depend on com.google.code.findbugs:jsr305. I personally found that Espresso Contrib and Espresso Intents also use com.google.code.findbugs:jsr305.

I hope this thoughts will help somebody to realise what exactly is happening here and how things work (not just copy paste some code) :).

I created a new project in Android Studio 2.2 Preview 1 with Android App and Backend module with Google Messaging. This is the app file:

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

android {
    compileSdkVersion 23
    buildToolsVersion "23.0.3"
    defaultConfig {
        applicationId "com.xxx.xxx"
        minSdkVersion 15
        targetSdkVersion 23
        versionCode 1
        versionName "1.0"
        testInstrumentationRunner "android.support.test.runner.AndroidJUnitRunner"
    }
    buildTypes {
        release {
            minifyEnabled false
            proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
        }
    }
}

dependencies {
    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
    compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.4.0'
    compile 'com.android.support.constraint:constraint-layout:1.0.0-alpha1'
    compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services-gcm:9.0.0'
    testCompile 'junit:junit:4.12'
    androidTestCompile 'com.android.support.test.espresso:espresso-core:2.2.2'
    androidTestCompile 'com.android.support.test:runner:0.5'
    androidTestCompile 'com.android.support:support-annotations:23.4.0'
    compile project(path: ':backend', configuration: 'android-endpoints')
}

But it's giving:

Error:Conflict with dependency 'com.google.code.findbugs:jsr305'. Resolved versions for app (1.3.9) and test app (2.0.1) differ. See http://g.co/androidstudio/app-test-app-conflict for details.

I am new to Android and not able to find what is this error. How do I fix it?


Add this this to dependencies to force using latest version of findbugs library:

compile 'com.google.code.findbugs:jsr305:2.0.1'

From Gradle Plugin User Guide :

When instrumentation tests are run, both the main APK and test APK share the same classpath. Gradle build will fail if the main APK and the test APK use the same library (e.g. Guava) but in different versions. If gradle didn't catch that, your app could behave differently during tests and during normal run (including crashing in one of the cases).

To make the build succeed, just make sure both APKs use the same version. If the error is about an indirect dependency (a library you didn't mention in your build.gradle), just add a dependency for the newer version to the configuration

Add this line to your build.gradle dependencies to use newer version for both APKs:

compile('com.google.code.findbugs:jsr305:2.0.1')

For future reference, you can check your Gradle Console and it will provide a helpful link next to the error to help with any gradle build errors.


In project ':app' you can add the following to your app/build.gradle file :

android {
 configurations.all {
    resolutionStrategy.force 'com.google.code.findbugs:jsr305:1.3.9'
 }
 }

METHOD 1: I deleted the androidTestCompile on espresso-core line which was automatically included in a new project. Then my Android Studio compiles clean.

The androidTestCompile is in "build.gradle (Module:app)":

dependencies {
    ...
    androidTestCompile('com.android.support.test.espresso:espresso-core:2.2.2', {
        exclude group: 'com.android.support', module: 'support-annotations'
    })
    ...
}

I don't know whether this deletion will have any problem down the road, but it surely works for my current project now.

METHOD 2: Adding an exclude on findbugs works too:

dependencies {
    ...
    androidTestCompile('com.android.support.test.espresso:espresso-core:2.2.2', {
        exclude group: 'com.android.support', module: 'support-annotations'
        exclude group: 'com.google.code.findbugs'
    })
    ...
}

METHOD 3: Forcing compiling with a specific version:

(In the following I force it to compile with the higher version.)

dependencies {
    ...
    androidTestCompile 'com.google.code.findbugs:jsr305:3.0.0'
    ...
}

The problem, as stated in your logs, is 2 dependencies trying to use different versions of 3rd dependency. Add one of the following to the app-gradle file:

androidTestCompile 'com.google.code.findbugs:jsr305:2.0.1'
androidTestCompile 'com.google.code.findbugs:jsr305:1.3.9'

This is due to espresso. You can add the following to your apps build.grade to mitigate this.

androidTestCompile('com.android.support.test.espresso:espresso-core:2.2.2') {
  exclude group: 'com.google.code.findbugs'
}

Those who are getting same error in Android 3.0.1,can resolve it by simply update the versions of compileSdkVersion and targetSdkVersion to 27 and also Implement com.android.support:appcompat-v7:27.1.1' in dependencies .


delete espresso dependencies in gradle file works for me.

delete those lines in app gradle file:

androidTestCompile('com.android.support.test.espresso:espresso-core:2.2.2', {
    exclude group: 'com.android.support', module: 'support-annotations'
})

i was trying to use airbnb deeplink dispatch and got this error. i had to also exlude the findbugs group from the annotationProcessor.

//airBnb
    compile ('com.airbnb:deeplinkdispatch:3.1.1'){
        exclude group:'com.google.code.findbugs'
    }
    annotationProcessor ('com.airbnb:deeplinkdispatch-processor:3.1.1'){
        exclude group:'com.google.code.findbugs'
    }
