Cannot add Gradle dependencies to my Codename One Project


I'm building a simple online app with Netbeans using Codename One, and I wanted to use Ably for internet communication, but I'm having trouble importing the Ably API.

<a href="https://www.ably.io/documentation/quick-start-guide" rel="nofollow">Ably's site</a> tells me that I need to add the line compile 'io.ably:ably-java:1.0.0' to the build.gradle dependencies section, but there is no build.gradle in my project. After seeing <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/35549182/how-to-add-gradle-library-dependency-to-a-codenameone-project?rq=1" rel="nofollow">this question</a>, I added a new build hint with gradleDependencies as the key and compile 'io.ably:ably-java:1.0.0' as the value.

When I try to run the project, though, it still fails and tells me error: package io.ably.lib.types does not exist import io.ably.lib.types.*;.

I did some more research, but everything seems to say that I did the right thing, like <a href="https://www.codenameone.com/blog/tip-use-android-gradle-dependencies-native-code.html" rel="nofollow">this</a> and <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/46183573/how-do-i-add-dependencies-to-the-root-level-build-gradle-file-in-my-codename-one/46185115" rel="nofollow">this</a>. I also tried changing the build hint key to android.gradleDep, but nothing changed.

Here's what it looks like on Netbeans: <a href="https://i.stack.imgur.com/RcSqc.png" rel="nofollow"><img alt="enter image description here" class="b-lazy" data-src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/RcSqc.png" data-original="https://i.stack.imgur.com/RcSqc.png" src="https://etrip.eimg.top/images/2019/05/07/timg.gif" /></a>

Here's the build hints window: <a href="https://i.stack.imgur.com/lHwUN.png" rel="nofollow"><img alt="enter image description here" class="b-lazy" data-src="https://i.stack.imgur.com/lHwUN.png" data-original="https://i.stack.imgur.com/lHwUN.png" src="https://etrip.eimg.top/images/2019/05/07/timg.gif" /></a>

If you need any more info, please let me know. Thanks!


The build hint should be android.gradleDep not gradleDep as it's an Android specific flag.

I would recommend adding a semicolon at the end of the dependency too e.g.: compile 'io.ably:ably-java:1.0.0';
