Could not initialize class org.codehaus.groovy.classgen.Verifier

Answered

I installed Android plugin in Intellij 2020.1 and when I started building a project it show's me this error ```Could not initialize class org.codehaus.groovy.classgen.Verifier```
I tried to set Gradle home manually but still not working.

I'm using:


- Intellij 2020.1
- JDK 14 and 13.01 (tried both of them)
- Gradle 6.1 and 5.6.4 (tried both of them)

I hope that you could help me.

Which Android plugin are you referring to? I'm asking because "Android" plugin is a bundled one - is it some custom vendor's one?

The Case above, Same with me too. These error happened on intellij idea. For Android Studio, it's working. For intellij idea not working. What should I do?

According to the following thread - https://github.com/gradle/gradle/issues/10248 - update your Gradle Wrapper to the latest version.

Yes, I did. Also I point the environment variable to the newest gradle. But, it's still not working

Seeing this is left like unresolved, let me add my bit to how I resolved this when I got the same error listed above. Took me over an hour to get it right.

 

1. File > Settings > Build,Execution,Deployment > Build Tools > Gradle

Use Gradle from : 'wrapper' task in Gradle build script

2. In gradle/wrapper/gradle-wrapper.properties :

distributionUrl=https://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-6.5.1-bin.zip

3. build.gradle

allprojects {
repositories {
google()
jcenter()
mavenCentral()
maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
}
}

dependencies {
classpath "com.android.tools.build:gradle:4.0.1"

// NOTE: Do not place your application dependencies here; they belong
// in the individual module build.gradle files
}

File > Invalidate caches and restart

> Task :wrapper

BUILD SUCCESSFUL in 26s
1 actionable task: 1 executed
> Task :prepareKotlinBuildScriptModel UP-TO-DATE

BUILD SUCCESSFUL in 1m 3s

 

You may have to add a configuration manually but the app will build and run after this. I did have some invalid root issues in the File > Project Structure and just clicked on the blue 'Fix' and was done but the app still ran fine though even with those problems.

Tested with JDK version 14.0.2

I hope this helps someone and if I missed something let me know and I will update this post.

Thanks
