How to solve NoClassDefFoundError: Apache Commons Lang Android

I’m receiving this exception when I try to use DateUtils.addMinutes():

My code is calling DateUtils.addminutes() to add 1 minute to variable date like this:

Date target = DateUtils.addminutes(date, 1);

I put the right dependency on my Gradle file:

implementation 'org.apache.commons:commons-lang3:3.11'

I researched a lot about this error and none of the solutions mentioned in another posts solve my problem. How can I fix it?

Answer

Change your grade file to this:

implementation 'org.apache.commons:commons-lang3:3.6'

then you can use this import in your classes:

import org.apache.commons.lang3.StringUtils;
