My react native android was compiling fine until I added react-native-firebase as per the docs (ios compiles fine).
8.3.0latest versions and followed docs very carefully.
> Task :react-native-firebase_app:compileDebugJavaWithJavac FAILED FAILURE: Build failed with an exception. * What went wrong: Execution failed for task ':react-native-firebase_app:compileDebugJavaWithJavac'. > Could not find tools.jar. Please check that /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home contains a valid JDK installation.
@msmfsd you may like this demo construction script, as there may be other steps missing, I think these highlighted lines are a similar workaround: https://github.com/mikehardy/rnfbdemo/blob/master/make-demo-v6.sh#L159-L161
good luck with your project!
Thanks for the tip @mikehardy Im actually a bit of noob w react-native but I'll have a look at your demo for some ideas for my firebase integration, thanks
