Firefly Creating Service in AndroidManifest.xml file
I'm currently getting a errors when trying to add my Plugin as a service in the android manifest file. I'm using Android Studio with gradle. However everything else worked perfectly fine. The error says: 'com.company.android.amazon.Plugin' is not assignable to 'android.app.Service' Validates resource references inside Android XML files. Any help would be appreciated!
Hi John, With the Gradle build system, for FirePhone, you will be compiling against API 17. The original error you noted would be consistent with trying to pull in an API 19 library – it will fail. As for API level, we certainty we understand wanting to use the latest Android features and libs, but we are not able to share any time frames for the FirePhone at this time.
Would that be the reason why I am getting the original error I posted in the first message? Because my targetSDK is too high at level 19? Does Amazon have a timeline of when they will give support for higher Android API's? Thanks
@Kevin thanks for the reply, a follow up question: Does the gradle version have to be 11+? I was originally using 9+ and have since bumped up to 10+ Also does the targetSdkVersion have to be 17? I have libraries that are dependent upon the 19 api level Thanks
