Java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError : Failed resolution of: Ljava/time/LocalDate; error error … here is a solution to the problem.

Java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError : Failed resolution of: Ljava/time/LocalDate; error error

Tried everything, still didn’t solve it

Here is my code :

public String[] getWeekDays() {

LocalDate today =;
    LocalDate monday = today;
    LocalDate tue = today;
    LocalDate wed = today;
    LocalDate thur = today;
    LocalDate fri = today;
    LocalDate sat = today;
    LocalDate sunday = today;
    while (sunday.getDayOfWeek() != DayOfWeek.SUNDAY){
        sunday = sunday.minusDays(1);
     while (monday.getDayOfWeek() != DayOfWeek.MONDAY){
        monday = monday.minusDays(1);
     while (tue.getDayOfWeek() != DayOfWeek.TUESDAY){
        tue = tue.plusDays(1);
     while (wed.getDayOfWeek() != DayOfWeek.WEDNESDAY){
        wed = wed.plusDays(1);
     while (thur.getDayOfWeek() != DayOfWeek.THURSDAY){
        thur = thur.plusDays(1);
     while (fri.getDayOfWeek() != DayOfWeek.FRIDAY){
        fri = fri.plusDays(1);
     while (sat.getDayOfWeek() != DayOfWeek.SATURDAY){
        sat = sat.plusDays(1);

String[] days = {String.valueOf(sunday),String.valueOf(monday), String.valueOf(tue), String.valueOf(wed),
                String.valueOf(thur), String.valueOf(fri), String.valueOf(sat)};
    return days;

I’ve written code to get the day of the week. When I run this code, I run this code in; An error was received at . The error is “java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: parsing failed: Ljava/time/localDate; ”。
I searched online. Some say it requires an API level of a minimum of 27. I’m tired of API 27 levels, but the error is not resolved. I have more and more target devices and I need to run API 26 at this API level. And try adding “compile” java.time:LocalTime:1.8″. This one won’t work either.
Please help me….


NoClassDefFoundError -Thrown if the Java Virtual Machine or
a ClassLoader instance tries to load in the definition of a class (as
part of a normal method call or as part of creating a new instance
using the new expression) and no definition of the class could be

LocalDate today =;  Added 1.8

Read LocalDate

Make sure you added it in the build.gradle section.

compileOptions {
    sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
    targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8

For reference only

The java.time package was only added in API 26.

So, you should set it


 minSdkVersion 26

After that, Clean-Rebuild-Gradle.
