I’m using react-native-firebase and some of its plugins. I’ve run the expo prebuild --clean command and then expo run:android.
I’m currently forced to use JDK 8 or I receive a number of version-related errors for later JDKs.
All of the latest editors I’ve downloaded, from eclipse to VS Code, don’t seem to support JDK 8 anymore. You need to install older versions, by the looks of it: eg Eclipse Luna.
I’ve managed to get the command to work with Netbeans, which still allows JDK 8 to be used.
I feel as if I’ve done something wrong here, and that it may be related to gradle. I’m new to Java and React Native, so I’ve no idea what the issue is.
I can’t find anything in the documentation about the required JDK version.
Does anyone else need to use JDK 8?
When I initially ran expo run:android, it downloaded a gradle file automatically. I’m wondering if it downloaded it incorrectly and what needs to be done to fix the problem if that’s the case…
