My Gradle Tips and Tricks

gradle_logoThe new Android build system is based in Gradle, an advanced build tool that simplifies build automation.

I used Maven for many years and Gradle project structure is very similar, but Gradle configuration files are Groovy-based and much (much!) more simple. Here is the official documentation

This week I migrated a lot of my Android and GWT projects to Gradle (some of them in my github), and here are some tips that I discovered (and I will add more as I find them):

Embrace the new Source Structure

Initially can be difficult, but putting the code under /src/main/java/, Android resources in /src/main/res/, etc. is a very popular form to organize the code. You can configure the build.gradle file to keep the old Android project structure, but I suggest migrating to the new structure.

Reference Another Project in your Workspace

You have two options:

  1. Use a Multi-Project Build
  2. Install the artifact (JAR if is a standard Java library, AAR if an Android Library) in your local Maven repo

Both options are explained below:

Use Multi-Project Builds

You can create a multi-project setup with projects on subfolders adding a settings.gradle file at the root with a include statement:

include 'library-project', 'your-project'

Then inside a your-project’s build.gradle you can easily add a dependency to another project (called “other_project”):

dependencies {
    compile project(':library-project')

Sample here.

Install a JAR to your Local Maven Repo (with the source code)

With standard java libraries and a build.gradle file like:

apply plugin: 'java'
apply plugin: 'maven'
group = ''
version = '0.8'

You can do “gradle install” to copy it yo your Maven repo.

Manually Install a JAR to your Local Maven Repo (without source code)

At the moment a lot of Google artifacts (=JARs, AARs) are not available at the Maven Central repo, but you can install them manually to your local Maven repo

mvn install:install-file -Dfile=android-support-v4.jar -DartifactId=android-support-v4 -Dversion=0.1 -Dpackaging=jar

You can also do it with gradle, but it is a bit more complex sample here.

Reference an Artifact from your Local Maven Repository

Be careful to add mavenLocal() to your repositories in the build.gradle:

repositories {

Then use a normal reference, for the android-support-v4.jar sample above, it will be:

dependencies {
    compile ''

Install an AAR to the Local Maven Repository

AAR is the new package format for Android Libraries. The “gradle install” task (that should install the AAR in the local Maven repository) does not works as expected in those projects, so I use a little hack:

apply plugin: 'maven'
uploadArchives {
  repositories {
    mavenDeployer {
      repository url: 'file://' + new File(System.getProperty('user.home'), '.m2/repository').absolutePath
task install(dependsOn: uploadArchives)

Usage sample here.

Android Library Projects need an Application Tag

This is an ADT bug, and the workaround is to add an empty application tag yo your library’s AndroidManifest.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="" ...>
    <application />

Include all the JARs in the libs/ Directory

This was the default behaviour of Android Projects, to maintain it you can add to your build.gradle:

dependencies {
    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: '*.jar')

I suggest referencing local JARs only in final Android projects, referencing them in libraries can cause problems, read below:

Avoid Referencing Local JARs in Android and Java Libraries

If you reference local JARs in Android libraries, those jars are going to be embedded in the AAR. If you reference again the JAR from a project that uses the AAR you will see this build error:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: already added: Landroid/support/v4/app/ActivityCompatHoneycomb;
1 error; aborting
:project:dexDebug FAILED

If an Android Library projects references a JAR library, and the JAR library references local JAR files, those local JAR files are not going to be embedded in the Android projects using the library.

The best solution is to install all the JARs to your local Maven repo as explained above.

Or Embed all the Dependency JARs Into your Library

In some situations you may embed all the JARs in your library, but ONLY if those dependency JARs are not going to be referenced again in a project that uses the library.

jar {
    from configurations.compile.collect { it.isDirectory() ? it : zipTree(it) }

Android Projects Need Libraries Compiled with Java 1.6

If in an Android Project you use a library JAR including classes compiled with source compatibility to Java 1.7, build gives this WARNING:

trouble processing:
bad class file magic (cafebabe) or version (0033.0000)
...while parsing Class

…and the class is not included in the APK, so the app force closes at running.

This may be solved adding in the build.gradle of the library:

apply plugin: 'java'
sourceCompatibility = 1.6
targetCompatibility = 1.6

Create a Source JAR for a Library

Source JARs are needed for libraries used in GWT projects. To generate them add this to your build.gradle:

apply plugin: 'maven'
task sourcesJar(type: Jar, dependsOn:classes) {
    classifier = 'sources'
    from sourceSets.main.allSource
artifacts {
    archives sourcesJar

You can install them to your local repo with “gradle install”

Include a Source JAR from Another Project

For multi-project_builds:

dependencies {
    compile project(':other_project')
    compile project(path: ':other_project', configuration: 'archives')

Sample here.

Include a Source JAR from a Maven Repo

Simply append “:sources”:

dependencies {
    compile ''
    compile ''

Chromium Embedded Framework

chromiumHTML5 is a fantastic app framework, but there are many environments where you cannot rely on the features support of the browser (specially when dealing against Internet Explorer, old windows versions or environments where you cannot freely upgrade the browsers). Recently I found this problem trying to package Mobialia Chess 3D for Windows 8. Microsoft provides some tools to package HTML apps to native apps, but they will run with the Internet Explorer engine, lacking features like WebGL, WebRTC, etc.

Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) is a library that allows to embed a Chromium webview in your native Windows or Mac desktop application. So you can convert any HTML5 to a traditional desktop app (and I bet some users to try guessing if Mobialia Chess 3D is an HTML5 app). You can also create a Windows/Mac installer to  distribute the app (I used InnoSetup, but this is another story…).

Using CEF requires a small knowledge about Windows/Mac desktop app development. I created a Windows app using Visual Studio Express, it was not very difficult, because CEF includes a “cefclient” sample project that you can use as a template to start your project development.

The main problem that I found was the size, embedding CEF will add 45Mb size to your installed application. I also found other minor problems like the lack of mp3 sound support (due to license problems) solved converting the sound files to ogg.

CEF is already used by great desktop applications like Steam, Evernote or Spotify, so it’s a great option to consider in your developments.

Setting up the GoogleTV Emulator 2

Many people has problems with the Google TV Emulator because it hangs up booting at the Google TV logo. The problem is that it only works with specific device configurations and resolutions.

First you need to install the “GoogleTV Emulation Addon” using the Android SDK Manager. Then, create a new “Device Definition” (notice the new “Device Definition” tab at the top of the Android Virtual Device Manager in the lasts Android SDKs).

When prompted for the device definition parameters you must enter:


This setup is for a 720p resolution, for a 1080p you must change the resolution to 1920×1080 and the density from tvdpi to xhdpi. Once the device definition is created, the next step is to create a new Android Virtual Device using it:


Et voilà, our Google Tv emulator is up and running:


JavaScript as a Runtime

The future is here, and JavaScript (JS) is everywhere, but JS development is so hard that many people prefer to develop in other languages and then compile their code to JS, using JS as a universal runtime. Here are the most interesting options:


GWT stand for Google Web Toolkit, but now it’s in hands of the community and extensively used in many corporations. GWT compiles Java into JS and it’s strongly optimized. I use it a lot, and I feel very productive using an advanced IDE like Eclipse with tools like code assist, refactor, etc.


A very compact language, inspired by Ruby and Python and that has become extremely popular in the last years. I’m not very familiar with the “Syntactic sugar” and I’m more productive with traditional languages (yes, I love curly backets! {}).


If you are an ActionScript developer (Adobe Flash), this is your language. It not only compiles to JS and ActionScript, also to PHP, C++, C#, etc. It’s becoming popular for the development of multi-platform mobile games with NME.


This is a new language for the web pushed by Google. It tries to be a “modern and structured” language for the web that can be run directly into the browser, but to retain compatibility (and to run in other browsers that publicly rejected Dart), it can also be compiled to JS.

List of languages that compile to Js:

Google Chrome Frame

Recently I’m hearing that Internet Explorer 10 (IE) is great, etc. but IE continues lacking some standards like WebGL. I’m working with WebGL in some HTML5 projects like:

and I couldn’t make the IEWebGL plugin work (it requires a different initialization). But Google has a great solution: the Chrome Frame, it’s an Internet Explorer plugin that runs an embedded Chrome, making possible for some advanced web apps to run into IE. Not great enough? It works with IE 6,7, 8 and 9!

Using it in a web page is extremely easy: Adding this header to your web page, IE will use Google Chrome Frame if installed:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="chrome=1">

And you can also add this javascript code asking the user to install Chrome Frame if it isn’t available:

<!--[if IE]>
  <script type="text/javascript"

  <div id="prompt">

    window.attachEvent("onload", function() {
      mode: "overlay",
      node: "prompt"

DevFest-X BCN 2012

For those who don’t follow me in the social networks, I’m now a co-organizator of the GDG Vigo (Google Developers Group), founded by Reinaldo Aguilera. In this group we are organizating a lot of interesting (and free!) Android and HTML5 activities (speechs, codelabs…) near Vigo, Galicia. Join to our Google Group and stay tuned!

This year I also went to the Barcelona DevFest, but as GDG Vigo we tried to help with the organization.

We participated in a Three.js codelab with Ricardo Cabello (Mr.Doob) showing how to make a very simple WebGL game in some simple steps. Slides are available at:

and source code is hosted in github:

In another session I also told my experience migrating some Mobialia apps from Android to HTML5 with GWT, those slides are at

Thanks Google, GDG Barcelona and GDG Tarrragona for the organization of such great event!

Java vs C# vs Javascript 5

*** UPDATE: This article had a HUGE mistake in the Javascript part, read below ***

I’m a Java guy but I’m always opened to other programming languages. I heard great things about Mono and the .Net platform, among those things recently I saw a Xamarin article about Android being ported over Mono in a project called XobotOS ( and they are getting a much better performance than with Dalvik.

They did it using Sharpen: an automated tool that can convert from Java source code to C#. I was hesitated and started to port my “Carballo” chess engine to C#. Sharpen runs as an eclipse plugin (but outside eclipse). The best tutorial that I found to install sharpen is here:

The new Carballo Chess Engine with a C# version is now hosted at GitGub ( You can launch the conversion tool running “ant” on the “csharp/” folder. This C# version hasn’t a graphic interface yet, but is great to make some comparisons…

I use a lot the BT2630 chess test suite, with positions to find the best move, lets see how much time needs my chess engine in Java to find the solution for the first position:

That is 15.490 seconds at 156.891 nodes per second with the “Mono JIT compiler version (Debian”.

I didn’t found the Sharp and Mono magic, at least in my case Mono is about a 30% slower than Java. This may be as a result of the automated code conversion…

I tested the GWT part in the GWT Developer Mode. In this mode, the code is run in the server as Java (and not in JS). In recent tests I found that the Javascript version is much more slow, probably because of the GWT Javascript Long emulation (Js does not has 64bits integers).

Well and this chess engine also has a GWT version. GWT is another magical Google product that converts your java code to Javascript. Let’s see how fast runs this test on the browser:

  • Jordi Bonet de Softonic explicó como han reinventado su negocio orientándolo hacia las descargas móviles
  • Finalmente, Nacho Sanchez nos contó su experiencia empresarial en @InqBarna desarrollando apps

Algunas de las presentaciones se pueden visualizar aquí

Yo participé con una ponencia sobre Android, y como la entrada al evento eran 25 euros (una ganga por cierto), hice una presentación con mis 25 consejos para los que comienzan a desarrollar; ya sabéis, a euro por consejo:

El evento terminó con un AppCircus del que fuí jurado junto con Miguel Sílva (@MSilvaConstenla de @Blusens, Elena (@Ilnuska) de @SpartanBits y Nacho de @INQBarna. Estas fueron las aplicaciones que se presentaron:

  • PictoDroid: Excelente aplicación Android para permitir a las aplicaciones con problemas de expresión comunicarse mediante pictogramas
  • Mussage: Aplicación IOS que permite enviar mensajes con canciones que están en la biblioteca del receptor
  • Chove: Completo radar de lluvia para españa en Android
  • Extremadura Rural: Guía offline de alojamientos rurales en Extremadura
  • ReallyLateBooking: Aplicación IOS y Android para buscar ofertas de hoteles en el mismo día
  • Binaurality: Método para aprender inglés basado en la escucha binaural para IOS y Android
  • Bits4Meetings: Iniciativa para proporcionar un sistema de creación de aplicaciones para eventos personalizadas (de los creadores de Ipoki!)
  • Berokyo: Aplicación iOS que permite organizar en estanterías documentos, contactos y medios digitales, sincronizándolos con DropBox
  • Obradoiros Abertos: Aplicación que ofrece información geolocalizada de talleres, tiendas y puntos de interés de artesanía gallega.
  • Absolute Defense: un shot’em up de gran calidad al más puro estilo R-Type

El nivel de las aplicaciones presentadas fué muy bueno. La app ganadora fue ReallyLateBooking, y la finalista Berokyo, esperamos haber sido justos. Mención especial me merece la presentación de Juan Porta de la aplicación Chove!, un tremendo showman más puro estilo gallego, que nos hizo pasar un momento estupendo, pena que no nos dejaran valorar la presentación.

Referencias en prensa/blogs:

Por si fuera poco y gracias a Blusens, tuvimos una fiesta del evento en una discoteca Santiaguesa, que se adentró en altas horas de la madrugada… Atención al detalle del gorro de Android de @IronSil, y curioso el efecto de “Ojos Blancos” de la cámara del Galaxy Nexus.

Google DevFest 2011 BCN 1

This week I assisted to the Google DevFest 2011 Barcelona. This year it was celebrated on a great “garage” located on an industrial area of Barcelona. I will tell the more interesting things that I found on the different sessions:


As usual, this session presented by Paul Kinlan showed us the future of HTML5. I love the x-webkit-speech Chrome feature to make voice inputs that we already could see on the Madrid DevFest 2010. Paul made also some demos of WebIntents  a great idea to make something similar to Android intents on the web. Finally we could see that HTML5 is advancing very fast trying to implement many APIS that will make Flash obsolete, like window.navigator.getUserMedia() ot the Web Audio API.


This session was presented by Mr. doob aka. Ricardo Cabello, a guy from the demoscene. He made a introduction of how 3D works in the browser and showed us how to use the GLSL language to make great effects on web pages. He has those GLSL demos on his blog.


There were two Google+ sessions driven by Ade Oshineye, one presenting the new social network (also announcing the Google+ Pages) and other with more technical details for developers. One thing that you can do easily is adding the +1 button to your site. Other very interesting tools that we could see were the Google APIs Console and the Google APIs Explorer.


Bruno Oliveira is replacing Reto Meier as our “Android Developer Relations”.  On the first session he made a great review of the Android platform evolution since 2.1 to 4.0. On the second session he gave us great tips to improve UX experience on Android. This guy is a showman!


This session was presented by Paul Kinlan and Bruno Oliveira, showing us that monetization tips are valid for both web and Android apps: Lazy registration, try before you buy, easy payment, in-app payments… Bruno also presented the new multilingual “Guide to the App Galaxy”


Daniel Hermes showed us the Google Shopping API and many integration samples.


Finally Sam Dutton made a review of the Google Chrome development tools. This tools replaced my FireBug many years ago! He also made his slides available.


This year Google also organized and Appcircus-style app competition. Those were the apps and sites presented:

I won the app competition, but all were great apps. Our presentation and some photos of the app competition are available at our Mobialia Blog.

Developing with Android-X86 2.3 and VirtualBox

One of the most tedious thing developing for Android is the lack of an efficient emulator. The bundled Android emulator with the SDK is very, very slow due to that it is emulating an gaming ARM architecture over X86 processors .

So I will propose you a solution based on Android-X86. This is a project that ports Android to the X86 architecture and they recently released the 2.3 RC1 version. With VirtualBox you can create a X86 virtual machine and install Android-X86 on it.

First, install VirtualBox and create a lol virtual machine with the following specs:

  • Operating System: Other
  • 512 MB RAM and 5 GB HD (enough)
  • Bridged Network (easier for the adb connect step)
  • Emulating a Sound Blaster 16 sound card (trying it as recommendation from Android-X86, but at the moment it doesn’t work for me)
Then download the android-x86-2.3-RC1-eeepc.iso image (see links at the bottom).

When you start VirtualBox by first time it will ask you for a boot CD, select the downloaded image. On start it will let you choose between running Android from the CD or install it on hard disk. Select install to hard disk, create a partition on the virtual disk, and install Android on the partition selecting  the “System read write” option.  During the online gaming installation process, you can create a virtual SD card (of 2GB maximum), the SD card is necessary for many apps to word.

Then you can now start your Android-X86 system (don’t forget to remove the ISO image). By default it will have the ethernet networking configured, you can check it at Settings->Ethernet configuration.

To start developing with this virtual machine, you need to connect it to your computer via adb, even if this is the computer you use for gaming using the best speakers as the one in this klipsch thx 2.1 review. Android-X86 includes by default an adb server listening on port 5555. On the virtual machine get your IP address pressing “ALT-<F1>” and typing netcfg (press “ALT-<F7>” to go back to the graphic screen). Then, on your computer type

adb connect <IP>:5555

Replacing <IP> with your virtual machine IP. Now the emulator is connected with adb to your machine and you can run apps on the emulator pressing play on Eclipse or start a shell in the emulator with adb shell…

The Android X86 virtual machine is much faster than the emulator. Take into account that native apps will not work on Android-X86, but Google-TV is also X86 based, so it seems that the X86 platform will be longer supported on the future.

Since tired of health which can result in league of Legends Support LoL Counter, Invade the right champion and even learn about everything that’s included in coming out on Youtube then you queue up the enemy jungle presence and In General and Role Counter or as champion and In General and patiently waiting for that if you have to win the biggest opportunity to face off against tank assassins champions against tank assassins league of legends champions against any patch release If you’ve followed us on top against tank assassins champions against tank assass

UPDATE: There is also a HoneyComb image at Android-X86 Google Code page that works on VirtualBox but without network (at the moment it does not support Ethernet) so it is not very usable for development.
