Upgrading to AGP 7.01 from AGP 4.2 – error: cannot find symbol class AssistedInject_MyModule (Dagger, @AssistedModule)

Published

I have a module annotated in the following way:

@AssistedModule
@Module
includes = [MyModule.Bindings::class, AssistedInject_MyModule::class]
class MyModule {
///some methods annotated with @Provides and Bindings
}

Nothing about the code has changed. The app successfully compiles and builds on AGP 4.2 and Gradle 6.7.1 (Gradle is using Java 8).

I went through the steps of upgrading to AGP 7.0.1 (with Gradle 7.0.1) and downloaded JDK 11 and set that as the JDK (requirement of AGP 7). This required that I update a few dependencies (outside of dagger/annotation processing).

The build.gradle files are exactly as they were when compiling the app under AGP 4.2/Gradle 6.7.1, with a few dependencies updated.

These are relevant lines from build.gradle.

apply plugin: "com.android.application"
apply plugin: "kotlin-android"
apply plugin: "kotlin-android-extensions"
apply plugin: "kotlin-kapt"

kapt "com.google.dagger:dagger-compiler:2.36"
kapt "com.google.dagger:dagger-android-processor:2.36"

kapt "com.squareup.inject:assisted-inject-processor-dagger2:0.6.1"
compileOnly "com.squareup.inject:assisted-inject-annotations-dagger2:0.6.1"

The full stack trace is shows some weird class cast exception in com.sun.tools.javac.processing.

error: cannot find symbol
@dagger.Module(includes = {com.myapp.MyModule.Bindings.class, AssistedInject_MyModule.class}

Has anyone seen a stack trace like this? I have verified that there aren’t any errors occuring before the symbol not found error that stops the build. I have tried upgrading to recent version of dagger, the square libraries, kotlin, coroutines, and just about everything else I could find in all of the issues I have read.
