HiltWorkerFactory.createWorker is missing my HitlWorker class resulting in NoSuchMethodException

See original GitHub issue

I am using 1.0.0-alpha03 with


I am experiencing the following issue:

 java.lang.NoSuchMethodException: com.nicolasmilliard.socialcatsaws.imageupload.ImageUploadWorker.<init> [class android.content.Context, class]
        at java.lang.Class.getConstructor0(
        at java.lang.Class.getDeclaredConstructor(

While debugging I was able to identify than my app does use HiltWorkerFactory but it’s createWorker method is not able to retrieve my @HiltWorker worker annotated class. It then delegate the creation to which in turn fails to create my HiltWorker. I can confirm that my build folder contains a ImageUploadWorker_Factory generated class.

The test project I work on is open source.

The Worker code is available here

The Android Application code is available here

Let me know if you need anything else.

@niqo01, you want to add kapt("androidx.hilt:hilt-compiler:_") in the library module (image-upload:android) where the Worker source is, notice the difference in the group id, there are two compiler, the AndroidX one for the Jetpack extensions, including for Workers androidx.hilt:hilt-compiler and Hilt’s

Specifically in build.gradle.kts#L38 update the line to kapt("androidx.hilt:hilt-compiler:_")

To be clear, whenever you use the androidx.hilt annotations, apply androidx.hilt:hilt-compiler. Meanwhile, wherever you use dagger.hilt or just dagger annotations, apply If a combination of both are used, then apply both processors.
