Multidex support with instant run

See original GitHub issue


Does this plugin support multidex ? With the following configuration I end up with an empty (with ressources but no class) APK :
compileSdkVersion = 25
buildToolsVersion = '25.0.1'
minSdkVersion = 21
targetSdkVersion = 25

Btw I am using java 7 sources and Proguard is disable.

When I disable the plugin, the multidex is working, giving me an normal apk.

Using Aspectj plugin without Transform API (like this one or the one from this plugin) seems to works with Multidex.

Thanks for the support and let me know if you need further info.

I’ll post update as soon as I find the solution for InstantRun support. Thanks for your feedback! Feel free to post any issues or questions you’ll face with.

Jar merger was the rudiment code, that was needed for proper work of proguard before gradle 2.2; but now this behavior leads to incorrect packaging of outputs and instantrun doesn’t slice jars, only app code. So because of aspectj slicer thought no application code was available and strips nothing into spk 😄 I’m happy we finally found the logic of this behavior.
